Cheesy maja blanca recipe

Maja Blanca or coconut pudding

Maja Blanca or also known as the coconut pudding is a popular Filipino dessert or snack that was commonly made from coconut milk, cornstarch, and sugar. In this recipe, I added corn kernels, evaporated milk to balance the taste of the coconut milk, and sprinkled lots of grated cheese!
