My Maja Maiz

This is one of my fave desserts. The first time I made this was on Trev's 11th month "mini-celebration" at home. Instead of buying a cake, I decided to just make one for him. :-)

A year later, I made the Maja Maiz again for no reason at all. Hihi!

And here's my little man, sneaky with the Maja Maiz. Haha!

Anyway, this is a very easy dessert to make. Here's how I did it. Feel free to tweak on the recipe based on your preference.

You will need:
1 cup cornstarch
1 half can of condensed milk
1 cup evaporated creamer (This time, I used evap instead of of coconut milk.The first time I did it, I used powdered coconut milk dissolved in water.)
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon butter (to be used to grease the pan/container)
Corn kernels (I put loads of it!)

Cheese (My husband is a cheese lover so I put tons of cheese toppings, too!)

  1. Put pan on the stove then add the cup of water and cornstarch. Mix until well dissolved.
  2. Add the cup of evaporated creamer. Mix well until thick.
  3. Add pinch of salt and the corn kernels. Mix again until thick.
  4. Remove from heat then add the condensed milk. Mix well.
  5. Return to the stove over low heat. Mix until fully thickened and well incorporated. 
  6. Transfer to a greased container. 
  7. Let cool then put inside the fridge to chill. 
  8. Enjoy!
