    Sabia's Note:

    I had this once before at a church function and I had to search the internet looking for it. Anyways, I found it and because it wasn't on zaar I thought I should post it here. This was the caption on the recipe "Delicious Hawaiian bread that anyone will love - even those who don't like coconut! Eat it for desert or with any meat hot off the grill. Taste great warm or cool."

      "Pani Popo" is actually Samoan. Not Hawaiian.

      Hawaiian would be: Palaoa Niu (Coconut Bread)

      CAUTION: DO NOT MAKE THIS RECIPE!!! You will never be the same again. You will wake up in the middle of the night with Pani Popo withdraws. One of the greatest desserts ever ever ever! P.S. I used precooked frozen dinner rolls, which completely eliminated the 'rise' time and significantly reduced the cook time (I think I cooked mine for about 15 minutes). SUPER easy and delicious!
