Custard Cinnamon Rolls

Several weeks ago my daughter was sick and asked me to make one of her favourite bread which we buy at the supermarket, it’s called a custard bread. I don’t know the supermarkets recipe so I will have to guess how it’s made, there are several things I know though, the texture which is resembles a cinnamon roll, it filled with some custard mixture and topped with some white sugar coating. Having those in mind, I can use my cinnamon roll recipe and fill it up with custard from my wife’s Brazo de Mercedes recipe but make it a bit stiffer so when it’s rolled it won’t ooze out and this is how I made it.

    Haven’t tried it yet, but thanks for sharing. I have been looking for a recipe using custard. The baker I used to work for had a great recipe but for a huge amount of rolls. This looks perfect for what I need.
