Staemed custard recipe with a topping of boba-bubble tea pearls
Staemed custard recipe with boba topping

To satisfy the sweet tooth of my kids, I planned to make one simple dessert which doesn’t make me stay in the kitchen for half the day. The pudding style foods lie in the category which won’t need much time to make. So I planned to make a Boba custard pudding with the available ingredients. To make the Boba custard pudding recipe easier most of the ingredients are store-bought pantry food.

I used the homemade boba pearls made with brown sugar to top the custard. Steaming is the cooking process I used. The recipe can be baked as well. The boba pearls contain brown sugar.
