Coconut Cream Bread Dough Recipe

When you think of a coconut, you likely soon after think of warm beaches, sunny skies and tropical weather. All those images are associated with the fruit, but I especially like coconut when the weather turns cool. This is particularly true for coconut cream. It is creamy, smooth and delicious and always digests well for me. Unlike milk, it is less likely to curdle in your tea and it evokes in every sip a slight nutty flavor. I am using coconut milk in my Pinehurst Coffee, which is rich bold and slow roasted, the coconut milk creates a sweet, creamy flavor.

Coconut milk can be used in teas, coffee, cookies, cakes, and right now, I am using it in my homemade breads. I love that it adds extra flavor and depth to each loaf. Coconut milk has vitamins C and E along with a load of B vitamins. You’ll also get minerals including iron, selenium, and magnesium.

There seem to be some instructions missing from this post between steps 3 and 4. I'm assuming you make the dough into buns after it has risen? How big should each bun be? How many should this recipe make? Do you bake them on a cookie sheet or in a muffin pan?

Are we making buns or bread loaves here? Shows buns, says buns recipe, but yields 2 loaves. Confusing.

Is coconut cream here the "cream" that collects at the top of an unshaken can of coconut milk? If so, that's easy enough to come by, and I'm looking forward to trying bread with it!
