Inside Out Coconut Buns.
I have / had 2 strange food issues.
I like both bananas and coconut but I absolutely hate the smell.
With bananas it goes back to childhood memories of hot late summer classrooms with leftover banana peels in the wastebaskets, perfuming the school.
With coconut it’s back to my teen years and the combined scent of coconut oil and sweaty bodies at the beach.
That being said, a favorite treat when I was growing up were ‘jockeys’. I don’t know if that was a regional name or the family name but everyone in my extended family made them. Start with a sheet cake, cut it into squares, frost all the sides of the square then roll in toasted coconut.
They were wonderful.
I thought of those as soon as I saw this month’s Buns.
They sound wonderful, too.
The Babes agreed.
Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, chose these sweet treats because they are pretty, easy, soft, fluffy, and delicious.
That covers it!
You can find the history of the ‘inside out buns’ as well as tips on making them and the recipe at My Diverse Kitchen. Plus you’ll find all the details of baking along this month.
That’s it for August
