#232_ Pan de Coco or Coconut Rolls

Pan de Coco, Coconut Bread or Coconut Rolls,
they all mean the same thing...
bread filled with
Sweetened Coconut or

I found it easier to fill the dough with the bucayo this way,
roll it up like jelly roll.
For the dough I used the Pan de Sal recipe #20, click here.

The rolls can then be sliced across to desired sizes.

The traditional way of making Pan de Coco
is to flatten each ball of dough
then put filling in the center,
gather the edges together then pinch to seal.

Serve Pan de Coco with hot cocoa...yummy!

(Sweetened fresh grated coconut)

For the Bucayo filling, I used the recipe of Virginia Ganzon Rodriguez who is a facebook friend and is so kind to give me the permission to post it here, but instead of posting it I'll just send you to her website to get the recipe, click here. It is a good bucayo recipe. The only thing that I changed in the recipe is the amount of water which I decreased to 1/4 cup and then I added 1/2 can of condensed milk when the mixture was almost dry, then cooked it just a little longer, about 2 minutes.

As per request of Maricel, (see her comment below) here is the recipe for Bucayo, the filling for the Pan de Coco or Coconut Rolls which I copied from Virginia's website.

1 lb. brown sugar
Approx. 1/2 cup water
1 pack frozen grated coconut, thawed
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cook sugar in water, then add the coconut and vanilla. continue to cook until the consistency is dry enough to fill the dough. Cool the mixture.

    Welcome back to blogging. I did not notice that you updated your blog. Hindi nag update and "follower" post sa google reader ko. My last update was April 2009. I was wondering if it is working. So nag subscribe na lang ko by email.

    I hope your eyes are not strained anymore.

  2. Hello Ebie!!!I've been meaning to quit blogging since last Summer, but facebook and blogging are very addicting. There are weeks I don't post anything though. My eyes are still bad...they get watery when I'm on computer a lot, but they can't be operated on right now. Thanks for subscribing. Take care!

    hi,just want to ask if i can subtitute the grated coconut to dessicated coconut?

  8. Menchie, sorry for the long delay in responding to your question as I had problem posting my response here. Anyway, my answer to your question: I think the dessicated coconut might be too dry and doesn't have much flavor to use in this recipe.
