In this post I provide instructions how to make coconut bake. My mother loves to cook and most of my recipes are based on what she taught me. My son is presently in Trinidad (where she resides and where we were born) and she is cooking all the things that he likes to eat.
Roast Coconut Bake is one of the dishes that she did and I had my daughter make a list of the ingredients and take pictures. She did a superb job!!! Thanks guys and I love you both!!!!
1 Pound (1 1/2 cups) flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp lard
1/2 cup of grated coconut (depending on the size of the bake)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp yeast
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Using water, combine ingredients into a dough or ball, and knead for about 5 minutes. The dough should be a little stiff if it is too soft add some more flour. Place dough into a bowl and cover with a towel and let raise for 15 minutes, then knead again until dough is smooth if it is not, cover to raise again and then knead.
When dough is soft, you can divide the dough into two if you like. Roll each dough into balls cover and let raise again for 20 minutes. Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees. After the dough is fully risen, roll them out using a rolling pin but not too thin. Place them on a greased flat baking pan. Using a fork lightly stick holes on top of the dough; this prevents the bake from raising too high. Place into oven until bake is golden brown.
