Maja Blanca

Maja Blanca is a Filipino dessert made from coconut milk, cornstarch, and sugar. Often called

Coconut Pudding, this luscious dessert is easy to make and the ingredients are very

common.Unknown to many, the original Maja Blanca Recipe does not include corn and milk. In this

recipe, I added whole sweet kernel corn and condensed milk for added taste and a more creamy

texture.Since Christmas season is just around the corner, this would make a very good holiday

dessert especially during potluck Christmas Parties and Noche Buena as well.

Preparing maja blanca is easy. All you need to do is follow each step indicated in this maja blanca

recipe. It is important that you give the coconut milk sometime to cook; it is also recommended that

you try your best to mix all the ingredients until the texture becomes as smooth at it can be. For

better results, cook the corn a little longer to release its flavor.

Try this Maja Blanca Recipe and let me know what you think.
