Manha Titiyas

Country: Guam
Course: Bread
Makes: 6 pieces


  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups of flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut water
  • 1 to 2 cups coconut meat, sliced thinly into 1-inch pieces
  1. Mix together all of the ingredients except for the coconut meat. Once combined, add the coconut meat. The dough should be pliable, so add extra flour until it is the correct consistency. If it's too dry you can add a bit more of the coconut water.
  2. Break the dough apart into six pieces and roll into balls. On a floured surface, roll each ball out until it is about as thick as a tortilla.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet and turn the heat down to medium. Put the tortilla in the skillet and cook until it's starting to turn golden on one side, then flip and cook the other side. Keep warm until ready to serve.
