Pani PoPo is something I'm considering making this year.
6 cups flour
1 packet – or 1 1/2 tsp. yeast
2 1/4 cups + 2 tbsp. of milk
1 tbsp. sugar + 1 cup sugar for mixing with coconut milk later
1 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp. butter – or margarine, Crisco
2 cans of coconut milk
Measure about 2 1/2-3 cups of flour
and your yeast into your bread machine or a large mixing bowl. In a
saucepan add your milk, sugar, salt and butter. On medium low heat
continue to cook until butter is almost completely melted. You may test
your liquid if you like, but be sure it is not much over about 100
degrees F. We don’t want to kill our yeast, do we?
When butter is almost completely melted, add your warm milk mixture
to your flour mixture and combine. Add remaining flour gradually to
make a smooth dough. Knead for about 6-8 minutes.
Butter your hands and butter a bowl
for your dough to rise. Rub that butter all over your dough and set it
covered in its greased bowl for about 45 minutes to rise.
After 45 minutes punch dough down and
form into little dough balls, placing them into 2 greased 13 by 9 pans.
This recipe will make at least 18 rolls depending on the size. Put 9
rolls per pan and let your rolls rise for about 20 minutes.
Mix your coconut milk with 1 cup sugar and pour over your rolls.
Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until they test done.
