Pani Popo

Leah Stacey


This is a Somoan bread dessert.My husband got the recipe from one of his Somoan friends. This has to be one of the easiest desserts to make! I feel in love with the first bite. You can switch it up and add crushed pineapple to the bread before you cook it and it taste like a pina colada.

How to Make Pani Popo


  • 1Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Place the rolls in the dish to rise. The dough may take several hours to rise or you can do the quick rise. The package should tell you how to do that too.
  • 2In a mixing bowl combine the coconut milk and sugar and mix well.
  • 3Pour the mixture on top of the rolls and cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes. If you are using the pineapple you will probably need to cook it for the full 20 minutes. I like to do half the tray pineapple and half regular.
