    Authentic or not, this is great bread/rolls! Reviews on a different site said to use coconut milk to make it more authentic (meaning the “coco” name in the bread). I did do this but didn’t notice the flavor of it. So you could use milk. On the pictures I saw online, there was 2 ways to shape this bread, I made both.

    Hello, So what makes it authentic, what is missing? I have a Jamaican friend and would like to fix a few of his favorites.
