Aloha! This is a fun and incredibly easy recipe from Hawaii. Super ono — that’s Hawaiian for “delish”!!


– Coconut Milk

– Coconut Syrup

-Sweet Bread

Serves 10-15


In a pot, mix 2 cups coconut milk, .0.5 cup coconut syrup (you can tweak this based on how many servings you want). Put on low heat and stir occasionally for 10 min.

Grab 8 sweet bread rolls, cut each in half.

Place in a 9-by-13 inch pan and drizzle (or in my case, drown) mixed coconut milk and syrup onto the bread. Place in oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Aloha, and enjoy!!
