Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Rising Time2 hrs
Course: Yeast Bread
Servings: 3 loaves


  • 6 cups flour + 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 pkg. yeast 1 1/2 TBSP
  • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup, melted


  • Beat eggs, add pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanilla and melted butter. Stir until combined.
  • Place 3 cups of flour in stand mixer (I use a Bosch). Add the egg mixture and mix until well combined. Sprinkle in the yeast and mix well.
  • Add the other 3 cups of flour and mix on low speed for about 2-3 minutes. If the dough is still sticking to the sides of the mixer, add another 1/2 cup flour and continue to mix. If the dough is still sticky add another 1/2 cup. I've never had to use more than 7 cups of flour for this bread, but it definitely depends on altitude, etc. so if you have to add a little more, it'll be fine! The dough should still be sticky to the touch, but not sticking to the sides of the mixer. 
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with cloth in a warm place. Let rise for 1 hour.
  • Divide the dough into three equal parts, shape into balls, and then place in greased round cake pans. Cover with cloth and let the dough rise for about another hour.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. As with any bread, it tastes the best straight out of the oven with melted butter! Enjoy!
