One of these things is not like the other
One of these things just doesn’t belong!

coconut rolls

summary: After reading in HomeBaking by Naomi Duguid and Jeffery Alford that coconut buns were available all over Toronto’s ChinaTown, we decided to try one. Guess which one is the commercial one….

We have no idea where the Chinese bakery tradition of soft white filled buns comes from, but in Taiwan, in Hong Kong and even here in each of Toronto’s Chinatowns, we can always find a bakery with a dazzling array of them.
 
– Jeffery Alford and Naomi Duguid, Taipei Coconut Buns, Home Baking, p.252

The buns we made weren’t exactly soft and white. We’re beginning to think strongly that Duguid and Alford forgot to include an egg (or two) in the ingredients list for their coconut rolls.
