Maja Blanca

 

Maja Blanca is a Filipino dessert made of cornstarch, coconut cream, milk and sugar. You usually see it during special holidays like Fiestas and Christmas. It’s a popular dessert here in the Philippines so you may see it in some restaurants and food courts. It’s one of my favorite next to Mango Graham Cake, Buko Salad, Ube Halaya and a lot more! 🙂

I modified the recipe a bit by adding corn kernels. Maja is very easy to prepare. You just mix the ingredients and cook until it thickens. It has a consistency of a thick gelatin and is creamy.

Here goes the recipe!

At this point. It’s perfect for a sandwich spread! You can either stop here and store this in a jar. Or continue with the sugar coated watermelon candy! 😉
