Coconut Egg Custard

This is a popular Chinese dessert. It can be served cold or chilled. Traditional recipes call for only milk. We use some coconut milk to add a little Southeast Asian flavor to it. The coconut milk also makes the egg custard smell very fragrant.

To prevent the custard from getting wrinkled and to achieve a silky smooth texture, we use aluminum foil to cover the custard during steaming.

This dessert is very simple to make and super delicious.

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 6 teaspoons sugar

  1. Put eggs in a mixing bowl.

  6. Transfer mixture to 4 small bowls.
  7. Cover bowls with aluminum foil.
  8. Fill steamer with enough water and place it on stove.

  10. When water is boiling, place bowls in steamer.

Notes:
  • To make the traditional egg custard, just use 1 cup of milk instead of 1/3 cup of coconut milk and 2/3 cup of milk.
  • We like our custard a little more firm. If you like a softer consistency, just add an additional 1/4 cup of water to the egg and milk mixture.
  • To serve this dessert cold, just let it cool down and put it in the fridge for about one hour.
