Steamed Ginger Egg Custard Recipe

There are desserts that I make because there is always room for dessert. 🙂 But there are some I make because it reminds me of my childhood, like this steamed ginger egg custard. These are super easy to make, and they are supposed to be good for you too! So totally no guilty feeling even if you prepare them often. 🙂

Steamed Ginger Egg Custard

Ginger, Egg, Milk, and Sugar

Yup, those are the only 4 ingredients you need to make this dessert. And the hardest thing you need to do is to grate the fresh ginger and squeeze out the juice, which shouldn’t take any longer than 5 minutes. If you want it to be even easier, just use a food processor/blender, and you will probably only need 1 minute!

Ramekins/Bowls

You can use any sort of bowls/ramekins to steam the custard, just make sure they are made of material that is steam proof. Aside from standard ramekins, you can use ceramic/stoneware bowls. I have also tried using Pyrex custard bowls, and tiny bowls from Corelle. Since you serve these steamed ginger egg custard straight out from the bowl, it is nice to use pretty looking ones.

Chinese Savory Steamed Egg Custard Recipe

Chinese Savory Steamed Egg Custard.

Eggs, stock (or water), and salt are the three ingredients to prepare this classic Chinese savory steamed egg custard. Don’t let the simple ingredients fool you, for this steamed egg custard is universally loved by all Chinese and is one of our comfort food.

Like most simple dishes, the hard part is to get it to perfection. The ultimate goal is to create a perfectly silky smooth egg custard, free of any lumps, and porcelain-smooth top. My recipe is going to detail how to achieve this.

Tips for getting a super smooth egg custard

Here are my tips to get that super smooth texture for your egg custard:

  1. Use medium heat to steam.
  2. Strain the egg, stock/water, and salt mixture.
  3. Cover the bowl with a piece of aluminum foil to prevent any water from dripping onto the custard and ruin its smooth texture.

Some toppings idea to go with the steamed egg custard

This dish is one that I grow up eating all the time. My grandma used to serve it plain with some drizzle of soy sauce, sesame oil, and thin slivers of scallions.

I thought that’s how everyone eats their steamed custard, but it seems you can pair it with almost anything. I’ve seen this egg custard topped with pork floss, or roughly chopped century egg, and even some meat sauce.

Steamed Egg Custard

Chinese steamed egg custard is one of the earliest recipes I learned as a kid. Although this may not be a fancy dessert, steamed custard always feels very cozy and satisfying to end a meal.

We only use eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla to make the custard. I think this is a handy recipe to learn because if you need a last-minute treat, you will most likely be able to pull this off.

Ingredients for Chinese steamed egg custard: eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla.

Ingredients for Chinese steamed egg custard

We only need four ingredients:

  1. eggs
  2. milk
  3. sugar
  4. vanilla

I almost always use regular milk to make the steamed custard, but I also like the version with soy milk. So if you are lactose intolerant and want to use soy milk, feel free to do so.

The amount of sugar stated in the recipe assumes using non-sweetened milk. If your milk is already sweetened, you may want to skip or reduce the amount of sugar.

Mix all ingredients together and strain into individual serving bowls/ramekins and place inside a strainer basket for steaming.
