Bajan Coconut turnovers: "Turnovers"



PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TURNOVER RECIPE WAS POSTED IN THE NEXT 5 POST SO I HOPE I DO NOT GET ANY REQUEST TO POST IT WHEN I DID.THE RECIPE IS HERE.

ANOTHER NOTE IS THAT THIS BLOG HAS BEEN MOVED OR SHOULD I SAY RELAUNCED SO CLICK HERE TO GO TO MY NEW BLOG
THANKS

I remember on Sunday evening in Barbados as a child you would be looking forward to icecream from the truck or "bread". When we say bread in Barbados it doesnt mean a measly slice of bread. It is the numerous pastries that we enjoy on the island. I think Barbados has some of the best pastries there are. There are a mixture of British and Caribbean flavours. One that is a favourite of mine because it is not too too sweet is the coconut turnover which is just called "turnovers" in Barbados. I am not sure they are vegan as the recipe calls for milk and I use soy. I know one or two small bakeries in Barbados do not put cows milk in theirs but I cannot be too certain. I just love turnovers . Ok ok a turnover is a sweet dough filled with sweetened coconut with almond essence. It is baked and brushed with sugar water and sprinkled with sugar at the end. I love it warm with a cup of tea and I like my coconut dry. Some people like their coconut mixture a bit wetty or juicy but I love mine dry and not too sweet.


I am sorry I did not cut the inside of the turnover so you can see the lovely swirl of coconut mixture inside. I use wholewheat flour as I am not a white flour lover. These are usually brown or white you can find both easily in Barbados. Here is a photo of some I made during Easter for the hubby. He really loved them. Mine did not have a long shelf life though as they got hard after 3 days.


If anyone is interested in this recipe just leave a comment and I would post it.


I am a bit fed up sometimes as I post long winded recipes and I do not even know if anyone has a use for it. So let me know if anyone is interested in making some turnovers.
