Meanwhile preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius.
Brush eggwash over the risen bun and bake for 15-20 mins.
Cool and slice and serve.

Chopped dates or other nuts can be added, but keep the ratio less than coconut, otherwise, filling will fall out when you slice.
Make individual buns instead of 1 big one.
