Dessert for Beauty - Steamed Milk Pudding

Homemade steamed milk pudding is economical in the sense that it only uses 3 ingredients: fresh milk, egg white and sugar.  If properly steamed, it's silky smooth with sweetened milk flavor.  The best part is , it heps to nourish our skin and improve complexion if eat regularly. That's why steamed milk pudding is also called "Beauty dessert".

I started with Double Skin Milk Pudding (双皮奶) , which is a famous dessert in Hongkong.  After a couple of successful attempts , combined with a couple of failed attempts, I realised my family does not really care whether the milk pudding has double skin or single skin. They simply love it.  So, I skipped the fussy steps of keeping the first skin,  and it turned out to be really simple to make. Since last month, we have been enjoying this dessert almost every other day at home.

To benchmark this homemade milk pudding with the one from local dessert house,  I went down to one of the famous local dessert house one day and ordered one bowl of steamed milk pudding. To be honest, the pudding there lacks of fresh milk fragrant, and the texture is not as creamy as mine.  I left the dessert house that day with great satisfaction, not as a customer, but as a "winner" :)
