When we had our Hawaiian meal (seems like a decade ago) besides the ribs and pu pu platter, I made Hawaiian bread. I did this not so much because I wanted to have it at this dinner as much as I wanted to make soft buns to see if they might work for hamburgers so this was something of a test.
I used the King Arthur Flour Hawaiian bread recipe. It is made with pineapple juice, eggs and butter. This creates a really sticky dough which was hard to deal with but for a good burger bun I am prepared to do that kind of dealing. Yeah, not so much. They tasted good but they were crumbly almost corn bread like. I followed the recipe exactly. So, fine for a Hawaiian meal but not so great for burgers.
Crossing that one off the list.
