Tips when preparing your doughnuts filled with milk tart custard

If you don’t have a kitchen scale to measure the doughnuts, you can determine the size of the doughnuts by making them roughly the size of your palm.

Don’t have a piping bag to pipe the milk tart custard into the doughnuts? You can use a freezer/zip lock bag. Fill the bag with the custard filling and chop the corner off and start piping. It works perfectly!

Also, take care not to put the cinnamon-sugar on the doughnuts while they are still too warm as the sugar will melt.

This sweet treat will make your family smile extra joyful this Easter.
