A hint of coconut flavours these spiral-shaped rolls. Serve them warm or cold with butter or/and preserves.


1 sachet / 7 gr dried yeast

1/2 cup lukewarm milk

1/2 cup coconut milk

55 gr / 1/4 cup butter

1 egg

1 sachet vanilla sugar

450 – 500 gr all-purpose flour

50 gr / 1/2 cup shredded coconut

pinch of salt

55 gr / 1/2 cup powdered sugar

1-2 tbsp granulated sugar


Mix half of the milk with the yeast.

In a medium bowl mix the coconut milk, rest of the milk, egg and melted butter.

and in another bowl 450 gr flour, shredded coconut, powdered sugar, vanilla sugar and salt

Add dry and wet ingredients to yeast-milk mixture and mix well to form a soft dough, add more flour if needed.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and let double in volume.

Divide the dough in 12-16 almost equal pieces.

Take one piece, roll it into a rope and curl it into a spiral

Do the same with the rest. Place them on baking sheets.

Leave around 20 minutes at room temperature. Preheat the oven at 425 F. Sprinkle with the granulated sugar.

Bake them for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

      Thanks for the comment.
      It was a time when I was using other vanilla sugar but i always came back to Dr. Oetker, I think is teh best, so far at least.

  4. Oh my goodness, they sound so GOOD! I make my own vanilla sugar by putting a vanilla bean in a jar and filling it with sugar. It only has to sit for a day or two before it’s ready to use. It’s easy and you can keep refilling the jar for a very long time before you need to switch the bean!
