    Coconut Bun

    What do we need:

    2 cups plain flour
    4 tbsp sugar
    1 1/2 tsp active dried yeast
    1/2 cup milk
    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 egg

    Coconut Filling
    1 cup grated coconut
    1/3 cup grated palm sugar (or more as per desired)
    1/2 cup water
    1 tbsp plain flour

    Egg Wash
    1 egg yolk
    1 tbsp water


How do we do it:

Whisk together the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Set aside.

Heat milk and butter until the butter melts and the mixture is about 50 C warm. Pour into the flour mixture. Also add the egg into the flour. Knead the dough until smooth and shiny. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Meanwhile, heat the water and palm sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add the grated coconut and flour. Stir constantly until the mixture becomes soft paste. Remove from heat and let the coconut filling cool.

Punch down the dough and knead gently on a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 12 equal sized balls. Flatten the each ball and fill with the completely cooled coconut filling and seal the bun neatly. Gently rotate the bun repeatedly until it forms a smooth-skinned ball. Place each bun into a greased baking dish. Cover the dish and let the buns rise again in a warm place until nearly double in size, approximately 45 minutes.

Beat together the egg yolk and water. Egg wash the buns. Bake in a preheated oven at 190 C for 20 minutes.
