Custard buns

I love anything with custard, including bread :)
Got the recipe from Cathy's site - only one word to describe: yum! :)

I added some chocolate paste for the remaining custard filling for the topping - double yum! :)

I made some ham and cheese buns with the same dough too :)

The bread is still as soft the next day! :)

What you need:

For the filling:

200ml fresh milk
20g castor sugar
1 egg yolk
20g castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
50ml fresh milk
10g corn starch
15g plain flour
10g butter

Mix A in a pot on low fire til sugar dissolved, off heat
Mix B with whisk til combined
Stir C til combined
Add C into B til combined
Pour A slowly into the above mixture, keep on stirring
Strain and pour back into saucepan
Heat on low fire, keep stirring til thickened, off heat
Stir in D, cover and let cool

For the buns:

270g bread flour
30g plain flour
3g bread improver
1 tsp instant yeast
1 egg
30g castor sugar
150ml fresh milk
30g butter

Using breadmaker:
Pour egg and milk into the bread pan, followed by flour, bread improver, sugar and lastly, yeast
Set into 'dough' and after kneading for 5mins, add in butter
The program is 1hr 30mins
After done, take the dough out, punch and knead for awhile on lightly floured surface
Divide the dough into 8 portions & place some custard fillings in the center of the dough, seal the edges thoroughly & shape them into balls
Proof the dough til doubled in size (45mins to 1hr)
Brush the tops of the dough with fresh milk & pipe the remaining custard forming a spiral (I added some chocolate paste into the remaining custard)
Bake in a preheated oven @ 180°C for 15mins

As for the ham & cheese buns, what I did was I flatten the dough, place 1 slice of round ham on top, roll it up, fold the rolled dough forming U shape, cut the top part and place on the pan, cut part on top, sprinkle some grated cheddar and mozzarella and a pinch of parsley
That would be the bun on the left side in the pic above
The bun on the right side, I placed the ham and grated cheddar then rolled it up, sprinle some mozzarella cheese and a pinch of parsley on top of the bun
