Maja Blanca W/o Coconut Milk

Traditionally, here in my country Philippines maja blaca is cook with coconut milk wherein you will extract the meat to get its’ milk. In my recipe, we will no longer use of coconut milk anymore but instead we will use the evaporated milk.

For Filipinos Maja blanca is known for a good dessert and always present in every special occasions. It has sweet taste that children will love. It is also nutritious because it has corn and milk.
