One of my favorite dim sum item is egg custard tart. When I crave for one at home, I make the steamed version, which is super easy since this is made with eggs, milk, and sugar. Though the steamed version will never stand up to the one with the tart, it is still pretty delicious, or you can eat this together with a croissant so it feel more like a tart. ♥

Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 15 mins
1 cup of warm milk
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
Prepare a steamer. I use my rice cooker with the steaming basket insert for steaming the custards.
Whisk eggs, milk, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Use a strainer to strain the mixture into four ramekins/bowls so you get a silky smooth custard. Cover the bowls with aluminum foil.
Once the water boils, steam the custards for 10 minutes. Remove the bowls from steamer, discard the aluminum foil, and served immediately.
