A quick weekday breakfast at home is usually bread or sandwiches. These coffee with custard filling buns (more famously known as roti boy or roti mum) make a delicious snack at tea time, with a cup of coffee.
You can use instant custard for the filling. I have some leftover custard from here (without adding whipped cream). If you are preparing a fresh batch of custard, do keep it in the fridge to harden up a little for easy handling.
Sweet bun recipe - refer to here
80g butter, rest at room temperature to soften
