Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls Recipe @

Homemade rolls are easy to make especially if you use bread maker but mine are made by hand from start to finish.  With homemade rolls, you can easily customize the ingredients you are going to add for instance this Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls, you can omit egg or milk by substituting with soy or almond milk.

Really, you  can use any basic sweet bread recipe and varies the filling.  This time,  I used  kaya (coconut jam) or any other jam as the stuffing.  Be prepared to encounter messiness along the way. In fact my filling is overflowing at the time of rolling. as you can see from my photo below.

Nevertheless Heart Shaped Kaya Rolls turned out fabulous and  tasted awesome! The are no harder to make and are a great way to dress them up for special  occasion.

I've never used a breadmaker. I'm not adverse to one, but homemade is so good, and not really hard, so I just haven't deviated from it. These do look tasty good (and pretty too). :)
