17 Feb 11 (Thu) - Steamed Milk Custard (炖奶)

Tomorrow I will be on anuual leave at home and a friend will be coming to visit as well as to make some desserts together. So decided to make steamed milk custard (炖奶) for her to try. After I had showered and set the clothes to wash, I started making preparations for tomorrow as well as making the steamed milk custard (炖奶). As my washing machine is the semi-auto type so I had to juggle between doing my laundry as well as the cooking.

Wanted to try something different and so took a small portion out of the usual amount of milk mixture and added some dried osmanthus flowers to it before steaming. Probably I had turned the heat slightly more towards the high side rather than the usual medium-high and also maybe the portion I had for my friend is smaller than usual, at the end of the steaming process, the surface of the custard was almost turning crater form.

So when I steamed my own small portion, I had to use a shorter amount of time instead and hence it didn't turn out too dry. The osmanthus steamed milk custard was very fragrant but I have not eaten it yet coz I wanted to eat it chill tomorrow.

Happily took some photos of my creations and started packing up the kitchen when I realised that I had forgotten to add sugar to both portions of the steamed milk custard (炖奶). So in order to try to salvage them, I dissolved some sugar in hot water and added them to the custards.Hopefully they will be tasty with the sugar syrup.

Hahaha... I know tomorrow my friend is going to laugh at me about this silly mistake. Will update about the results after we eat the custards tomorrow. Stay tune.
