I have an amazing treat for you today and it involves the pineapple curd I shared last week!

This recipe is the reason pineapple curd exists. Bright, tropical flavor that is perfect for incorporating into a spring breakfast.

These sweet rolls are so incredible. The dough is soft and fluffy. It’s a no-knead sweet roll recipe so you don’t have to do a lot of work. But the flavor and texture is spot on. Perfection.

The dough does take a bit of time to prepare, so plan ahead. It is made much like this rosemary olive beer bread. It has to sit overnight in order for the gluten to develop, thus allowing us to skip the kneading.

Filling the rolls with sweet pineapple curd gives them so much flavor. It is best to make the curd a day ahead. This will give it plenty of time to cool down and thicken. It’s easier to work with that way.

Add even more flavor, by topping the curd with crushed pineapple before rolling the dough. This isn’t necessary but it is highly recommended.

Bake the rolls and serve them warm with cream cheese icing. You will absolutely love them!

Ingredients

For the filling

  • 1 recipe for Pineapple Curd

For the sweet rolls

  • 3 and ½ cups bread flour
  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon instant yeast
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, well-drained

For the icing

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Make the filling

  1. Make the pineapple curd according to the recipe instructions.

Make the sweet rolls

  1. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast to a large bowl. Stir with a whisk to combine.
  2. In a 2 cup measuring cup, add the butter, egg yolk, vanilla, and milk. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula until moist and soft dough forms. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit on the countertop for overnight, 12 to 24 hours.
  3. Spray a 9-inch round pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. With well-floured hands, flatten the dough slightly then fold it over onto itself to form a small square. Roll the dough out into an 8x14-inch rectangle. Spread ⅓ cup pineapple curd over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Spread the crushed pineapple evenly over the curd. Roll the dough up starting on the long side. Pinch to seal the seam. Cut into 8 rolls. Arrange the rolls cut side down in the prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Spread icing over warm rolls and serve immediately.

Make the icing

  1. Beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add milk and vanilla. Continue to beat until well blended and smooth.

I made only the dough and used it for cinnamon rolls. Such a easy recipe, and they were divine! Tomorrow I'll use the pineapple filling.

Thanks! Kristen
