Serves: 4


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of warm milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Prepare a steamer pot with about 1 inch of water over medium heat.
  2. Whisk eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl.
  3. Use a strainer to strain the egg mixture into four bowls/ramekins to get an extra silky smooth custard.
  4. Cover the bowls/ramekins with aluminum foil, and arrange them in a steamer basket.
  5. Once the steamer is ready (water is boiling and there is plenty of steam), place the steamer basket and steam the custard for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the custard from the steamer, discard the aluminum foil, and serve immediately.
