Brown Sugar Fresh Milk Egg Pudding

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 4 Egg
  • Pudding
  • 15-20 g Water
  • Brown sugar syrup
  • 70 g Brown sugar

  • Prepare a pot with water and boil it first, put the pudding in the pot and steam, steam for 10-15 minutes on medium heat. When steaming, use a chopstick to put a small gap between the pot and the lid.
