Trust me, this corn- and coconut-flavored pudding is easy to make and even easier to eat!

Majarete is a traditional dessert made in Venezuela and in many parts of the Caribbean. As with as many other dishes in Latin American, there are many different versions from different countries and even different kitchens! It's typically made with a combination or corn flour, corn, and coconut milk. For this recipe, I used corn flour and coconut milk, along with sugar and a few spices for added aroma and flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • cup corn flour (I used harina PAN)
  • can (13.5 oz) coconut milk
  • 1/2  cup sugar
  • 400 oz. piloncillo or panela (unrefined cane sugar)
  • 1 can condensed milk sweetened
  • 1 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
