Double Skin Milk: One Of The Tastiest Chinese Dessert


Double-skin milk is a traditional Chinese dessert that is made by steaming a mixture of milk, egg whites, and sugar. The result is a creamy, sweet, and delicious treat that is perfect for any occasion. In this recipe, we will show you how to make double-skin milk step by step.


  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • Optional: red beans and raisins for garnish


  1. Begin by steaming the milk for ten minutes. Pour the milk into a clean bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Allow the milk to cool for a few minutes.

  2. While the milk is cooling, separate the egg whites and yolks of the eggs. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they are fluffy. Gradually add the sugar while beating the egg whites, until they are well-combined.

  3. Once the milk is cooled, use a toothpick to remove a small opening in the milk skin that has formed on the surface. Slowly pour the milk into the bowl with the beaten egg whites, stirring constantly to combine.

  4. Use a sieve to strain the mixture, discarding any solids. Pour the mixture into a clean, heatproof bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Use a toothpick to poke a few small holes in the surface of the plastic wrap.

  5. Bring a pot of water to a boil and place the bowl of milk mixture into a steamer. Steam the mixture for ten minutes on medium heat, then turn off the heat and let it sit for an additional five minutes.

  6. Once the double-skin milk is finished steaming, remove it from the steamer and garnish with red beans and raisins, if desired. Serve warm or chilled and enjoy!
