Coconut Sweet Bun

I would like to give some suggestions for making a perfect coconut sweet bun. Firstly, add lukewarm milk (about100 degrees F or 38 degrees C) to flour mixture and knead the dough until silky and elastic. Lukewarm milk is very important to this recipe to activate the yeast. If you use hot milk, then it will kill the yeast. so try to use lukewarm milk. You can also use warm water instead of milk. But milk gives richer taste to the coconut sweet bun.

Secondly, place the dough in a warm spot for about 2 hours or until it has doubled in size. Finally, if you are a vegetarian, brush some milk over the dough instead of egg wash.
