Pretty darn close! This is probably the closest recipe that I have made to copy the King's Hawaiian rolls (King Arthur Baking has a couple), still not quite as sweet as the original but sweet enough! I found the rise times to be good (it definitely takes more like 2 hours on the last rise) however I used SAF Gold which is better suited for higher sugar doughs. I would fully expect anyone using regular instant yeast to need perhaps a lot more time to rise - make sure you are letting the shaped rolls rise until doubled in size, not so much as indicated by time. Cook time was good at 14 minutes much to my surprise - rolls tested at 190 degrees internal temp and were done. Overall, pretty good but bakers will want to refine the methods used, personally I used my bread machine for the dough on a custom programmed cycle and put 4 rows of 6 rolls into the 13 x 9" pan.
