    This recipe was hard to follow and the dough did not rise. I was helping my daughter with this recipe, she's a new bride and I felt bad she had to waste the ingredients and her first bread turned out badly. We will probably try this again only with my bread recipe and your coconut filling. RookieBaker21's mom

    This did not rise for me. The directions were also difficult to follow...since I am new to baking breads. Where was the 4 Tablespoons of sugar used?'s not in the directions. Thanks...I bet they would taste great though!

    Maybe it is just me. But the directions about when,how, and where to put the coconut filling in is unclear. I would really like to make these, but do not want to waste ingredients to try these and have it wrong. I have been a baker for 36 years and am used to clear formulas. Please rewrite a little more clearly. Thanks.
