Bakery Bread Brings Bunches of Bliss!

Sorry for the super long hiatus! Life has been pretty crazy around here! Buuuut looky what I made! Lots of Chinese bakery-style breads!!! These were all made for a bake sale at my church. They were the fastest selling items!

If you remember from a while back, I started a tutorial on how to make this bread which is none other than my favorite-- red bean!! :D (I will finish that tutorial... eventually..)

For the very first time, I made taro bread! The kind of taro used for sweets turns this lovely shade of purple when cooked and sweetened. The taste is mildly sweet with floral undertones. This is a traditional kind enjoyed greatly by many of my Asian friends and their parents :) Yum!
This is another one of my favorites! The filling for this one was a coconut cream made with toasted coconut, sugar, and EB. Each loaf was garnished with an almond sliver. Mmm.. These had a great toasty, nutty sweet flavor.

Blurry shot of the bread at the bake sale. Anyone up for some carbs?
