Chocolate Custard Bread

As you know, I love to buy recipe books and to date, my best buy for bread and bun recipe book was one by Alex Goh. Tried many recipes from the book and it never failed to yield soft yummy bread.

Savoury buns for the past few weeks brekkie so this time, I made a change and did some sweet fillings for our buns.  It did not disappoint as usual. I got a pan of pillowy soft and fluffy buns with yummy streusel toppings.

See how fluffy these buns are!
Trying making these and enjoy them over a cup of coffee for an extra oomph.
