Pani Popo: Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

You know how obsessed I am with coconut :)
So when I discovered these from Roxana's Home Baking, I knew I had to try them.

They're definitely a sweeter type of roll.
It's baked in sweet coconut milk...AHH I just loved these rolls!
After it comes out of the oven, the sweet coconut milk gives it a nice sweet glaze on top.

These are definitely a nice change from the typical dinner roll.

Really Yummy!


3 c all-purpose flour 
1 1/2 tsp yeast 
1/4 c lukewarm water
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil 
1 can coconut milk 
1/4 to 1/3 c sugar - depending how sweet you like it


  1. In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, make a well in the middle, pour the lukewarm water and sprinkle the yeast on top.
  2. Leave a couple of minutes (about 5) until the yeast is dissolved and bubbles appear.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp oil and a pinch of salt and with the dough hook on, start mixing slowing and adding 3/4 c plus 2 tsp coconut milk until the dough comes clean from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Leave the dough in a oily bowl, covered, to rest until doubled in volume.
  5. When risen, divide it in 8-10 balls and place them in a round or square baking dish.
  6. Cover again and let it rest until almost double in volume.
  7. Meanwhile heat the oven to 375 degrees and mix the rest of the coconut milk with the sugar.
  8. Pour over the rolls, sprinkle some raw sugar on top (optional) and bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown and the coconut milk is absorbed.
