Coconut Rolls: More Delicious than Cinnamon Rolls!
These tropical coconut rolls, known in
Pão Doce com Coco, are
denser and less sweet than American
They are filled with a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and coconut flakes (
doce de coco
) and deliciously topped with a smooth and sweet coconut glaze.
For the dough:
Active dry yeast
Unsalted butter melted
Make the dough:
In a large bowl, mix the yeast with the sugar. Stir in the warm milk and let rest for 5 minutes.
Then prepare the filling:
Mix the coconut, condensed milk, vanilla, and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Reserve!
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to form a 15-inch rectangle, then brush most of the melted butter on top of the dough and spread the filling.
Grease and line with parchment paper a 13” x 9” rectangular baking pan. Arrange the coconut rolls into the pan in a single layer, keeping them about at least 1-inch apart.
