Custard Bun

Custard Bun

This soft little buns stuffed with creamy custard is so delicious and flavorful! Soft pillowy bread stuffed with a little sweetness is always what I love to have and this custard bun is one of my fav from a coffee shop here. So decided to give it a try and here it is for you guys! I’m not saying that it’s 100 perfect but to some extent i achieved it.Yay!


The bun has thick custard filling and here i brushed the top of my bread with the same custard and loved the coating! This will be a good option for iftar menu or as a tea time snack or breakfast. Kids will love it too. Kashif and pappa gave a thumbs up for this! If you love to bake bread do give this a try. As it’s Ramadan I don’t have time to take videos. Sorry for that.

After proofing the bread divide it equally and spread it and fill it with custard. Here you have to make sure that custard is thick enough, otherwise, it will be a great mess while preparing the dish as it will ooze out while baking if it didn’t seal well. Take care of this two things and you will get a perfect Custard Bun.
