Tropical Bread

This bread makes a great dinner roll or sandwich bun. There’s just a hint of sweet coconut without being too dessert-like. ~ Alan

  • 4 1/2 tsp Coconut Memories loose tea
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 4 cups Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Oil
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 pkg. Yeast


  1. Place Coconut Memories loose tea in the milk and let it cold steep in the refrigerator overnight (8-12 hours), then use a strainer to remove the loose tea.

  2. Beat eggs. Mix half of the flour with the package of yeast.

  3. Combine the milk, sugar, oil and salt in a saucepan and warm to 130º F. Add milk mixture to flour, then add eggs and mix. Gradually stir in more flour until dough forms.

  4. On a board, add flour and knead until smooth and elastic. Shape in a ball and let rise in a greased bowl until double in size.

  5. Punch down and divide into 12 pieces. Let the dough rest about 10 minutes, then shape and place on a greased pan. Cover and let rise until double (about 30 minutes).

  6. Bake at 375º F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown. Place on rack to cool.
