Coco Bread/ Carribean special

Coco bread is available on streets of Jamaica and other islands stuffed with fried plantains, patties and jerk spices chicken. It is a very tasty and unusual kind of bread. I will be using it to stuff with other patties in future.

a pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp Quick-Rise Yeast
1.5 cups Coconut Milk or Water
2 Tbsp Melted  Butter

2. Heat coconut milk until luke warm
3. Add butter to this warm liquid
4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and combine to make a soft, sticky dough

I've actually never had coco bread. eventhough here in NY with lots of Jamaicans in outer boroughs it is sold in pizza shops stuffed with a beef patty inside but always looked so heavy to me never tried and a fried patty inside an APF dough seemed so carb heavy
