Haupia is a Hawaiian pudding made with just a few simple ingredients. It is lightly sweet and creamy with a coconut flavor and is easy to make.
- Serves: 8 persons
- 15-ounce can coconut milk
- 1cup whole milk
- 1cup granulated sugar
- ½cup cornstarch
- edible flowers, for topping
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2In a medium bowl, add the water and cornstarch and mix well until smooth.
Step 3In a medium saucepan, add the coconut milk, milk, and sugar. Turn the burner to medium-high and whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a boil, about 12 minutes. Once boiling, bring the heat down to medium-low, keeping the mixture at a low simmer. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture while whisking constantly. Continue cooking and whisking until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.
Step 4Transfer the mixture to an 8x8-inch baking dish greased with cooking spray or coconut oil.
Step 5Allow the mixture to cool for about 20 minutes then transfer to the fridge to continue cooling and setting for at least 2 hours.
Step 6Remove from the fridge and slice. Top with edible flowers and serve chilled.
