Pan de Coco

I found this recipe online a long time ago. And like every recipes I got, I printed it out and totally forgot the original source. I do not claim every recipe here as my original. But rest assured that the recipes I got here has been cooked and tested by me and passed according to my standards and tastes. They are fairly easy and perfect for a novice cook/baker like me.

Pan de Coco Recipe


3 cups bread flour
1- 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar + 1 tbsp 

1/2 tsp salt

1 pouch rapid rise yeast 
3 egg yolks
1/4 cups milk 
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup water
extra flour for kneading
sugar for dredging

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 tbsp softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
(Combine all ingredients, set aside.)

(yields 12)

1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Dissolve yeast in warm water and 1 tbsp sugar. Stir to dissolve and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Set aside. 

3. In a large bowl, combine the milk, 1/4 cup sugar, butter, egg yolks and salt.

4. Blend well then add the yeast mixture. 

5. Add flour to make a moderate stiff dough.

6. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes or until dough is smooth & elastic. 

7. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place for at least an hour.

8. After rising, transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. 

9. Use a dough slicer to divide the dough into 4 equal parts.

10. Roll each part until it forms into a log. Cut each log into equal pieces. (see picture above)

11. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin until it stretches into a round shape. (see picture above)

12. Place about 1 tbsp of filling in the middle of the flattened dough.

13 Gather sides of round, pinch together and twist.

14. Place all the shaped dough (pinched side down) on a lightly greased baking sheet or tray lined with wax paper.

15. Cover the tray with a damp cloth and let it rise for 20-30 minutes.

16. Bake the shaped dough for 20-25 minutes. 

Serve warm. Enjoy!

Wow! That looks totally delicious. I just had lunch now and still I'm craving for that pan de coco in this recipe. Too bad we don't have an oven to bake those goodies.

I never tried to bake Pan de Coco before , i might use this recipe in the future. Or I am tempted to make one today, I got all those ingredients.

MikiHope said...

Sound yummy--but I fear they would throw my sugar numbers off the roof!! Too bad--I think I really would enjoy one (or two or three) of these

nova hedges said...

What i do, is to buy the ready made bun and then just make the fillings myself. I've seen doing this since i missed our pan de coco in Philippines...everyone loves it here

Corinne said...

Becca Wilson said...

These look really good. I tend to go the crescent roll route when doing things baked inside but this looks doable even for an amature baker

MzBaker said...

With your expertise in baking, I am sure you can make a lot of Filipino bread. I always failed on pandesal wahhh
