Citrusy Cream Cheese Custard Bun

After being away for so long, I'm still trying to pull myself back together and started baking again but it seems hard to move around this days without any dynamic inspirations. However, I at least started my favourite bread baking already. I really missed my homemade breads and so are the kids. NOW....I think I'll have to come up with more yummy hot breads. I'm really craving for some. Here's what I've been working on the prefermentation bread making.

(2) then let dough rest for an hour or till double in size.
(3) once its ready, punch to release air from dough and slightly knead dough till smooth with oil coated hand.
(4) now, place dough to a slightly floured working table and divide into 12 portions.
(5) fill in each portion with one table spoon of custard and sealed nicely to let to rest on baking tray for 30 mins or till double in size.
(6) brush the top with egg glazing and sprinkle on some poppy seeds then bake at preheated oven 190'C for about 25 mins or till brown on the middle rack.
