  • 18 Rhodes Frozen rolls partially thawed and quartered
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple drained
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • Lightly spray a bundt pan with cooking spray.
  • Begin by layering macadamia nuts, coconut, pineapple, and rolls. Repeat several times until all the ingredients (except the butter and brown sugar) have been used.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter and sugar over medium-high heat. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir and boil for one minute, and then remove from heat. Pour it over the top of your dough with nuts, coconut, and pineapple.
  • Let mixture rise until it reaches the top of the pan, 1-2 hours.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
  • Once removed from oven, let sit for 10 minutes. Then invert onto serving plate, and let sit another ten minutes with the pan on top. Then carefully remove the pan.
  • Serve warm or at room-temperature.
