Maja/Maha Blanca (Corn Pudding) with Coconut Curd


Here's my recipe. I modified it from Zan's of WOF. You can also try my other recipe which uses condensed milk instead of evaporated milk. I like it better too!

1 can coconut cream
1 cup cornstarch
1 can corn kernels
2 cups coconut milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar

Boil thick coconut cream in a saucepan until the oil is extracted and the precipitate forms into a dark brown color. This is called latik or coconut curd. Drain the latik from the oil and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, mix coconut milk, evaporated milk, sugar, cornstarch, and corn kernel. Boil over slow heat, stirring constantly to prevent lumps, until mixture is clear for about 3-5 minutes.

Pour hot mixture into prepared dish and allow to set. Sprinkle latik on top. Cool before slicing. You may also sprinkle grated cheese and crushed peanuts.
