Creamy Maja Blanca

Because the Philippines has an abundance of coconut, this ingredient has become quite a standard fixture in some of our dishes. Ginaatan, for example, is a collection of the menu with the like of ginataang langka, ginataang gulay, ginaatang monggo, at many more. For desserts it is also quite a common ingredient for bilo bilo, suman, cuchinta, palitaw, and more. Today I will share my recipe for maja blanca, a typical dessert I bring to social gatherings.
