Hello friends and readers of this blog-
I will be spending a week with my family and won't be back until 20th this month, Before I head out, I leave you this Ube Coconut Rolls Recipe to be enjoyed for the rest of the week. Keep visiting my blog and I'll see you when I get back.. :)
Honestly, I don't know what this recipe called. This is just one of those "AHA! Moment" in the kitchen. Sometimes I just love to explore the flavor and mix ingredients and see the result myself. This is just a combinations of my two favorite ingredients, Ube/ Purple Yam and Coconut Flakes. The sweet idea about this recipe is, basically same process of making spanish rollls the only different is the filling and I used coconut flakes instead of breadcrumbs for coating.
The texture of the bread is soft and you have this sweet ube filling inside and toasty coconut flakes outside.. I would say perfect rolls anytime of the day.. YUMMO! I can't wait to share this recipe with you guys.. C'mon lets start baking :)
