Pandan Custard Soft Bread 斑斓卡斯塔软面包

Pandan Custard Soft Bread made using Sponge Dough Method are so soft and the bread stay soft for days. Added custard filing to the fragrant pandan bread, these bread tastes heavenly. 

This was my 2nd attempt using sponge dough method after I baked the Lazy Doggie Sweet Potato Loaf  back in September 2014. The outcome was totally different from my first attempt. 

The bread turned out so light and soft that I can eat 2 buns at one go and don't feel full! My 7yo son loves this! Pandan bread goes with custard filling, they are simply delicious...好看又好吃!

I can't tell exactly how long it would stay soft because we finished eating the bread on the next day. However, based on the 2nd day texture, I believed it would still soft on the 3rd day.  You may scroll down to the end of this blog post to read some of the reviews from my readers who have tried this recipe. 

I used the same recipe for Pandan Rolls with custard toppings.
Modified the shaping method, the rolls turned out even softer and lighter than my previous attempt.
