I got too many ube powder and before it got wasted I tried turning some of it into Maja de Ube.
Maja de ube is creamy coconut pudding that has a purple color and the consistency of thick gelatin.
1/2 cup cornstarch
115 grams purple yam powder
1 can 370 ml evaporated milk
1 can 400 ml coconut milk
1/2 cup cream style corn
1 cup sugar
coconut flakes or grated cheese
In a mixing bowl, dissolve sugar in coconut and evaporated milk. Add corn starch and ube powder, mix thoroughly. In a pan, pour the mixture and cook in medium heat.
Turn to low when maja starts to boil, add corn. Stir continuously to prevent mixture from scorching.
When mixture starts to thicken and glisten, maja is fully cooked. Immediately transfer into a baking pan or mold and let it cool. Top with toasted grated coconut or coconut sport and corm.
