Custard Cube

This is a small size, cube loaf.
The other day, I got small cube tins.

I arranged custard buns recipe for something special.

I wrapped custard cream with the dough. And I baked  it with the cube tin.
I needed a lid to make it cube shape. I used baking tray as a lid.

This is chocolate version, here
Slice it, but you cant use toaster. Custard cream would melt out.
Custard Cube (10 x 10 x 10cm loaf tin)
200g Bread flour
3g Salt
3g Instant dried yeast
20g Sugar
50cc Milk
70cc Water
10g Unsalted butter

100g Custard cream

Icing Sugar for decoration

1.  In the mixer or bread machine, combine the dough ingredients without butter. Mix it 10 minute. Add butter and knead it another 10 minutes. It can be stretched a paper thin“windowpane.
Prepare tin. Apply oil on the tin and baking tray.

2. Transfer the dough to a covered container and ferment at warm room temperature. 1 hour later, fold the dough and proof it another 30 minutes till it becomes double size more.

3. Pour the dough onto floured counter, then deflate it, knead briefly.  Preshape it and let rest, covered, for 20 minutes.

4. Shape into final loaf.

①Roll it over about 20 x 25cm with the rolling pin. Get the air out from the dough.
②Place the custard cream onto the dough.
③Fold over and seal it with your finger.
④Fold over the another side and seal it.
Seal it tightly with your finger !!

⑤Roll the dough gently.

⑥Set it into the tin. The sealing side has to be bottom in the tin.

5.  Cover the tin with oil sprayed baking tray. Place it into warm place with moisture for 40 - 60 minutes.
Meanwhile preheat oven at 190℃. Spray water before bake it.

6.  Bake it at 180℃ with steam for 10 minutes, 160℃ for 25 minutes.

7. Cool it down on the wire rack.

8. Dust icing sugar for decoration.

 It is placed at Yeastspotting.


  1. I tried to find cube tins. No luck. These breads look delicious.

  2. I found them at the comarcial baking stuff store. Also I could get them in Japan. There are tins with lids in Japan.
    I like chocolate version. If you got too much chocolate on Christmas, you should try to make it :)
