    JanetB-KY's Note:

    posting this for ZWT 2006 (Asian Region), this is a nice change from traditional dinner rolls. The coconut milk adds a mildly sweet flavor to them.

    1. 1
      Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sugar in 1/2 cup of warm water; sprinkle in the package of yeast; let it stand for 10 minutes and then stir.
    2. 2
      Heat the milk to lukewarm, stirring occasionally; add in the butter, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 cup warm water.
    3. 3
      Add the heated milk mixture and 2 cups flour to the dissolved yeast mixture; beat until the mixture is smooth and elastic.
    4. 4
      Gradually stir in the remaining 3 cups of flour, adding a bit more flour if necessary;.
    5. 5
      the dough should be soft and easily leave the sides of the bowl.
    6. 6
      Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and round it up into a ball;.
    7. 7
      knead the dough until it is smooth, elastic and not sticky; again, add a bit more flour if necessary.
    8. 8
      Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl; turn the dough so that the top is greased as well; cover with greased wax paper and a towel.
    9. 9
      Let the dough rise in a warm place until it has doubled (about 1 1/2 hours).
    10. 10
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
    11. 11
      Punch down to let the air out of the dough; turn it out onto a lightly floured board.
    12. 12
      Use a wet knife to cut the dough in half, and then each half into thirds, and thirds again; this gives 18 buns.
    13. 13
      Shape the buns into balls and place on a lightly greased baking dish such as a cookie sheet with sides; bake for 18 - 20 minutes.
    14. 14
      After removing the buns, use a pastry brush to lightly coat them with butter then slather with more butter and any other high calorie bad for you toppings you can think of and enjoy!

      A great cross between a roll and biscuit. Definitely do not cook any longer than 18-20 minutes. I made a couple subs bc I realized a little late I dn have coconut milk. I used coconut juice with soymilk instead. I allowed these to rise all night and they were delicious. I might try to add whole wheat flour or flax next time. Thanks!

      This makes nice bread. I did use coconut milk, and all the other listed ingredients. I used bread flour, but am not certain of the meaning of blended bread flour. In any case, I only needed about 4 3/4 cups to make a soft, but not sticky, dough. The dough is beautiful to work with, maybe because of the high fat content of the coconut milk (JMO.) Being very fond of coconut, I wanted to make a bread that fulfilled its potential. I made rolls, similar to cinnamon rolls, but filled with coconut, and, in one case, apricot jam and coconut. I don't think I have reached perfection, yet, but, as far as this bread is concerned, I have no complaints. Thank you for sharing this interesting recipe with us.
