Brazilian Coconut Rolls ( Pao Doce com Coco )

brazilian coconut rolls

My neighbor Lisa gifted me with a bag of coconut and 2 cans of coconut milk.  I was very thankful for the gift and decided I would wait until I found something very special to use them in and return her gift to me back, in the form of a special treat to share with her and her family.  I came across these delightful Brazilian Coconut Rolls on a blog called…From Brazil To You. Denise Browning, a trained chef, wife and  mother of 2 beautiful girls, was born and raised in Brazil.

I also didn’t grease the bowl to let the dough rise in and I had no problem getting it out of the bowl. After the dough rose it took no effort at all to roll this out.  This recipe makes 8 -10 large rolls, you can make them smaller if you like, and yield more . The recipe says to bake at 392 degrees F, I baked them at 375 degrees F.  My oven goes from 350 degrees to 400 degrees, I picked the middle temperature.

We Americans love our sweet rolls and cinnamon rolls because they’re SWEET.  We put sugar in the filling and frosting on top.  You are going to want to make these rolls with sweetened coconut to get a sweet roll that we are accustomed too.  And please do drizzle the left over sweetened condensed milk over the top after you pour the topping over the hot rolls.  The recipe topping gets absorbed into the roll tops and the sweetened condensed milk makes a nice sweet glaze .  This is a wonderful sweet roll recipe ,thank you Denise for sharing it with us. You are going to love these Brazilian Coconut Rolls, an authentic Brazilian Treat From Brazil to You!   Enjoy!



2 envelopes active dry yeast
5 1/2 cups flour plus 3 TBLS plus 2 tsp of flour
8 TBLS white sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon warm whole milk
1 large egg , room temperature
1 cup plus 4 TBLS coconut milk
7 TBLS unsalted butter, melted


About 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tsps vanilla extract
1/8 – 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
4 TBLS unsalted butter, melted


13.5 ounces coconut milk
10-12 TBLS granulated sugar
4 TBLS shredded sweetened coconut
For an added glaze, top warm baked rolls with sweetened condensed milk


In large bowl, mix the yeast with the sugar,  Stir in the warm milk and let rest for 5 minutes.  Stir in the egg, then the flour, coconut milk and butter.  Knead the dough and let rest in the bowl, covered with a warm wet towel in a warm place until doubled in volume, about an hour.
Mix the shredded sweetened coconut, condensed milk, vanilla and nutmeg together.  Roll out the dough on a floured surface, then brush most of the melted butter on top of the dough and spread the filling.  Roll up like a jelly roll and cut into 2 inch slices.  Arrange into a greased rectangular baking pan or a round cast iron skillet in a single layer.  Brush the remaining melted butter on top of the rolls and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.  The rolls will continue to rise so it’s better to place them a bit apart from each other.  Bake in preheated oven at 392 degrees F.
Stir the coconut milk, sugar and shredded sweetened coconut together, drizzle over the bread while still warm.
* For an added glaze, drizzle sweetened condensed milk over rolls.
