We always loved Char Siu Buns as kids and sometimes Dad would buy buns from Chinese Bakery in Chinatown as treats. I also tried some different toppings and fillings. My bro' likes Bor Lor Bao ~ Pineapple Bun 菠蘿包 so I thought I'd try recreate that one. There are several different recipes for pineapple topping floating around the internet but I like the sound of this one from Bao/Bread and as it was enough for 6 buns it gave me opportunity to whip up a batch of custard filling as my third bun flavour.

Have still yet to make my Hong Kong favourite - Tuna Bun 吞拿魚包. Also got to dream up of some more tasty fillings! Yum Yum! Am loving this recipe so much! I have to thank Everybody Eats Well In Flanders again for sharing an excellent recipe!
