In this recipe we are bringing the moves and flavor with tembleque, one of Puerto Rico’s most popular desserts. It gets its peculiar name because once molded, it jiggles. Temblar means to tremble, hence tembleque.
This dessert is easy, comforting and delicious. It reminds me of my childhood when our nanny would make it for us and she would let me sit in a corner making sure I scraped the pot clean of all leftover pudding. Sweet memories. I still scrape the pot… old habits never die.
