As some of you may know, I don’t really have a sweet tooth ;) Heaven knows I’ve said that often enough when commenting on your various sweet posts but hey, that does not prevent me from appreciating all those decadent goodies you make. In the strictest sense of the word I don’t have a sweet tooth. However, when it comes to any sweet made with coconut, I’m weak :) so coconut bread (aka sweet bread), coconut drops, coconut buns, coconut ice cream, salara… I’m there.
For sometime now, I’ve found it difficult to buy any of these things commercially made and the reason lies in the main ingredient – coconut. I’ve often found that there is usually not enough coconut or that all the moisture has been squeezed out of it thereby making the baked good dry and flavourless. All you get is the dry husk. Click here for the column if you’d like to read more about my love of all things coconut including the milk, the water and the jelly.
My favourite way to have sweet bread is with a cup of tea or a glass of ice-cold mauby or ginger beer.
When it comes to eating salara, I like to unfurl the roll and eat each layer by itself getting direct contact with the filling.
You can click here for the column. The recipes for the Sweet Bread and Salara are book-embargoed by my publisher, click here if you are interested.
Finally, my friend, Pat of Pat’s food blog bestowed upon me one of the nicest awards I have received and guess what? It’s the Nice Matters award! Thank you dear Pat. I am chuffed and honoured.
And for each one of you that reads this blog, this award is passed on to you. It's so nice of you everyweek to take time to stop by my blog and leave a kind word. Thank you so very much. Hugs.
