Fast Facts
The average age of a Samoan in the US is 24.  Among Pacific Islanders we are the 2nd youngest group.  Additionally, compared to the total US population whose average age is 35, we are practically babes. These statistics indicate to us that we haven't even reached our prime!

Delicious Coconut Buns

  • 1 Bag Frozen Dinner Rolls
  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 1 Can of Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

Follow directions for frozen dinner rolls. Let rolls rise in a 13" X 9" cake pan. In a quart sauce pan, mix coconut milk, water and sugar. In a small bowl, mix corn starch and a few tablespoons of cold water till all clumps are gone. Bring the coconut sauce to a boil then add the cornstarch mixture. Simmer for about 3 minutes (sauce will thicken a little), then remove sauce from heat. Bake rolls. After 10 minutes take out rolls and pour the coconut sauce over the rolls till 1/2 to 3/4 of each bun is covered in sauce. Put the rolls back in the oven and continue baking the rolls with the sauce until the tops of the rolls are golden brown. Remove pan and allow a few minuites to cool. Serve warm.

Left over sauce can be used to smother rolls when served individually or for a second pan of Pani Popo

Substitutes: You can use any dinner roll recipe instead of the bag of frozen rolls. However, if you have never made bread before, you'll find the frozen rolls are very easy in comparison.
