Eatpress recipes with a twist

Posted on: May 1st, 2012 by admin 2 Comments

We constantly remake most of the recipes on eatpress.  It’s like our online recipe-book that we like to share with others, but we use it more than anyone! There are lots of family recipes here that we bake and re-bake all the time, sometimes with a twist.  For instance, the Milk bread rolls we bake, often turn into either cinnamon scrolls or coconut buns.  The vanilla cookies we always bake for valentines day, often get made in other sandwiches forms.  Scones we make every Sunday, usually classic, but sometimes with nuts added.  So today we thought we’d share some of our favourite twists on recipes already here.

Coconut scrolls

Using the Milk bread rolls recipe.


  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 3/4 c shredded coconut

In a saucepan on medium heat, add all 3 ingredients and stir gently until the mixture thickens slightly.  This will take only about 3-5 minutes, don’t left it get too hot.  Then turn off the heat and let stand.

Once the dough is made and has risen one time.  You want to roll it out on a floured surface into about a 40cm x 25cm (15 x 9 in) rectangle. Spread coconut mixture all over dough – it will be a little messy! Beginning at the long side, roll up dough into a long log and pinch the edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15  roughly 5cm (2 in) slices.

Grease the bottom of baking pan with butter. Place coconut roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about another hour. Bake for about 25 – 30 minutes or until nicely browned.


Vanilla sandwich cookies

Use our classic vanilla cookie recipe AND the decorator frosting recipe.  Before baking, cut the cookies with a larger cutter and then cut out a little circle from the middle of half the cookies. Bake as usual and when cooled spread the topside of finished cookies with frosting and quickly sandwich together – the frosting will set and the cookies double in value!


What are your favourite re-mixed recipes?  Ever made a variation of an eatpress recipe?  We’d love to hear it.

Song for these recipes:

“Kiss” Daft Punk Remix (This is a tricky track to find, but I’m sure if you search you will find!)

Remix recipes while listening to remixes? OK! Daft Punk, what a great time they bring me back to. Listening to Discovery on repeat, while grinding glass for my honours year at University, pretty much in syn with my friend Mere. We listened to that disc like crazy, dancing away with our no-skip disc-mans. And Prince – how could you ever go wrong with Prince? I love that he appears occasionally here in Montreal while the jazz festival is on and does a couple of surprise shows at various secret locations. What a self-loving/loveable man. What I wouldn’t give to stumble on one of those shows…
