Coconut bun, This reminds my childhood day, we used to addict for this coconut bun, in home town we buy a big sized coconut bun, which is hard enough to fill the tea time for the whole family, nowadays this is available in all kind of Local bakery’s too.

This recipe is not the same one for soft puffy buns, i need a thick crusty outside.. and i got the good end with this recipe.. you can skip the food colour, and can add few more dry fruits and nuts of your choice too.. earlier i use to eat the centre part, i won’t have the edge part, that’s in childhood rite, now i love the whole bread.. this is a absolute match with a cup of hot tea, to fill the tummy.. you can brush the top with egg white for a more darker version of it.. I have few more variations in this kind of recipe will post them in coming days.. This is my Day 44 of B365..
