Ginger Egg Custard

Devices Used:

  • Immersion blender – IE: Cuisinart SmartStick or any of these, the Best Immersion Blenders.
  • Food steam, such as the Bella Steamer, one I’ve used and highly recommend.

Oh, my god, this is good, and it’s relatively healthy.  You can prepare this as a diet item, or, go to town and top it with a “delightful to crack” burnt sugar topping.  50 percent of a low carb diet seems to be made up of eggs, so this is a tasty dessert that will work for that Keto diet line of thinking very well.  You can use low-fat milk if you need to. And who doesn’t love ginger?  Well, you wouldn’t be reading this if you did!


Ginger Egg Custard

Serves: 2


  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp (50 g) sugar
  • 2 tbsp ginger juice



Get your steamer ready, as this will be perfect for it.


Grate ginger to get 2 tbsp juice. You can grate directly into the bowl/cup.


Mix the eggs, milk, and sugar in a bowl or wide mouth cup until sugar is dissolved.


Pour the egg mixture through a strainer into another bowl using a spoon or spatula to squeeze the ginger juice through.


Divide your custard-to-be between two serving bowls… then cover with plastic wrap or a square of aluminum foil.


Steam for 11 minutes or more


Optionally, you can sprinkle the top of each steamed custard with sugar, then, carefully, use a small blow torch to melt the sugar.
