Chocolate Buns & Custard Buns

Today, I made sweet bread with chocolate and custard cream inside.
Soft and sweet like brioche, contained milk, butter and sugar.
I should have apply egg wash!! I forgot about that!
And, don't bake too much, otherwise cream is comming out.

At first, make custard cream and chocolate cream. Add lots of vanila beans  to custard cream.
Good for coffee and breakfast.
