I decided to try making these today because I had a chunk of taro sitting on my counter since Monday and it was beginning to bug me. It's a sweet bread with a sweet taro filling. Taro is a starchy root with a strong aroma and very bland taste. I made a sweet filling out of the it and rolled it up into loaves with some bread dough. The bread dough is the same dough I use to make Sweet Bread Buns. Taro is just boiled and mashed with sugar (to liking), about a cup of coconut gratings, 3 tbsp heavy cream and some red and blue food coloring for extra purple-ness (I'm going to use purple yam next time for natural color and sweetness).
