Steamed Ginger Egg Custard Dessert

I think this can be considered a healthy dessert if you overlook the rock sugar, right? This dessert is simple (and of course delicious), uses minimal ingredients, but still delivers a nice kick to your tastebuds. If you’ve never had this dessert, think of silky smooth sweet custard made with eggs. Ginger is optional, but I highly recommend since it helps tone down the sweetness.
