Don’t be put off by the name of this sweet bao. Egg custard buns are not a body sculpting issue that you need to work off, well…unless you eat too many of them! I made a batch today to help a young woman satisfy her boyfriend’s love for these steam filled buns. Who would think that leavened steam bao could help lovers?
As with the chicken and shiitake mushroom bun filling, this one was developed to be used with the basic yeast dough in Asian Dumplings. Add it to your repertoire for an unusually fun sweet dumpling treat!
The recipe for the egg custard bun filling is on Viet World Kitchen.
