It's almost All Soul's Day and All Saint's Day! And for us Filipinos, it means time with family, visiting the graves of our loved ones in the cemetery and of course food, right?
When Filipino families gather together, it usually means cooking in large batches so that the entire family will not be left wanting.
One of the desserts that I remember my mom makes whenever there's a family gathering is the Maja Blanca. I love it so much that I asked her to teach me how to do it. I have made this several times for my family and the only problem is that no matter how many batches I make, it's always not enough for them!
If you want to make Maja Blanca for your family this All Soul's Day or All Saint's Day, below is an easy recipe that you can follow.
4 cups kakang gata
3/4 cup of corn starch
3/4 cup of condensed milk
3/4 cup of fresh milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 small can of whole sweet corn kernels
Boil your coconut milk in a large pan.
Add your condensed milk, sugar and corn kernels.
Simmer for for 8-10 minutes over low heat.
Mix fresh milk and cornstarch,make sure there are no lumps left.
Pour your milk and cornstarch mixture into the pan and mix well.
Stir consistently until it turns thick.
Transfer to a serving dish.
Garnish with toasted grated coconut if you want.
Set aside to cool then pop it in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
Do you have a different way of cooking Maja Blanca con Maiz?
