ABOUT Maja Blanca / Creamy Coconut Milk Pudding With Corn RECIPE

Maja Blanca also known as coconut pudding is a Filipino dessert made primarily from coconut milk. It is soft, creamy, delicate and sweet. It€:tm:s super delicious, you will have guests raving for more. Imagine soft bites of luscious coconut pudding generously studded with sweet corn kernels. And if that€:tm:s not enough, an abundant sprinkling of golden latik for additional layer of texture and flavor. 'Latik' is what coconut milk becomes when simmered under medium fire for some time. This dessert is always a hit in fiestas and all other festivities and parties, especially Christmas!
