How to Cook Simple Maja Blanca
The first thing that we need to do (according to Claire) is to combine the milks (coconut and evaporated) in a saucepan and then add sugar, cornstarch and corn. Whisk until there are no lumps present. Set the heat between low and medium and continue to cook until the mixture reaches a pudding-like consistency.
Grab a glass container or even an aluminum pan and pour the mixture in it. Spread until the mixture is evenly distributed. Add crushed peanuts or raisins on top.

- 1 Cup cornstarch
- 1 Small can corn kernels
- 1 Can coconut milk
- 1 Can evaporated Milk (not the small can)
- 1 Cup sugar
- ½ cup crushed peanuts
- ½ cup raisins (optional)
- Place cornstarch, corn kernels, coconut milk, evaporated Milk and sugar on a medium sauce pan and blend well with a whisk until all the lumps are pretty much gone and disappear.Turn the heat on medium / low and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. You literally have to continue stirring or the bottom will burn and lump up.Stir for 5 to 7 minutes until you reach a firm pudding consistency.
- Pour hot mixture into a prepared dish and add the crushed peanuts or raisins. If you like both you can add both :-)
- Completely cool and cover. Place in the fridge if you like it cold or you can leave it in room temperature (covered) for a day or two.
