Pani Popo

This is a recipe from the Polynesian islands. It's known to us mainlanders as coconut bread. I for one am a HUGE fan! I can't ever get enough coconut! This is great with Kalua Pork or grilled chicken.

2 c warm water
1 1/2 T yeast
1/2 T salt
1/4 c sugar
6 T butter
2 eggs
1/2 c powdered milk
6-7 c flour

Mix together water, sugar, salt, powdered milk, eggs, and butter, add flour slowly. Knead dough for 8 minutes (this is much easier with a Bosch). Turn into a greased bowl and let rise for 30 minutes or until doubled.

While dough rises make coconut milk syrup.

1 can coconut milk
2-3 c water
3/4- 1 1/2 c sugar
5 T cornstarch

Mix all ingredients well in a sauce pan and cook on low to medium heat until thickened. Place in fridge to cool.

Form dough into rolls. When they have doubled again pour syrup over the rolls and bake at 375 for 20-25 mins.
