IMG_6159– first prepare custard by mixing all ingredients, and heating over low heat in a saucepan. stir constantly till mixture becomes thick. remove from heat, cover with cling wrap (directly over custard) and allow to cool for an hour
– mix all dough ingredients together with custard (except butter) and knead till you get a soft dough
– incorporate butter and knead till dough is soft and silky
– allow to proof till double in size
– punch dough down and divide into 3 equal portions. allow dough to rest for 15 mins
– roll a portion of dough out and roll it up swiss roll style. repeat the same process for the rest of the 2 portions and place in a greased loaf pan
– allow to rise for the second time till it fills up 90% of the pan and brush the top with egg wash
– bake for 35 mins in preheated oven of 180 degrees C, tenting bread once the top begins to brown

Personal notes:

IMG_6163– i made a 340g loaf, and made 4 individual buns (@43g)
– little animals expressions are painted with melted chocolate just before baking
– buns were baked (un-tented) for 14 mins
