My one public follower, Lisa, suggested sweet rolls with banana and dulce de leche. Well, I aim to please. I made them.
Did I like them? Not really. I could like them eventually with a few changes I'm sure. You see, I didn't like the banana. I might like it better if the banana in the filling is made into some kind of pudding or custard. Because I like bananas in banana bread and I like bananas in general - I like bananas in ice cream - that is especially good... but hot bananas in these rolls was kind of weird to me. Also, the next day when the roll was tested at room temperature - the banana slices were a bit like - how do you say it - like when a banana is left out and browns a bit - they tasted like that - like baby food or something...
Hey Lisa - when you had that spanish pastry... how was the banana cooked into it? Maybe I've presented it here in the wrong way. Some people like baked bananas - not me - not really. I loved the nuts - gave it the perfect crunchiness... I really liked the toasted coconut... Any suggestions on how to combine the banana in a good way - please feel free to comment. I did like the banana - butter glaze - that went with it quite well.
The Recipe for 12 rolls:
1/2 tablespoon active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm light coconut milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup melted margarine or oil
3 cups BASIC ROLL MIX
additional flour, if needed
1 to 2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoon fine white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
