Maja Blanca Recipe (Rice Pudding)


  •  1/2 c. thick coconut milk
  •  rice flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  •  ¼ cup jackfruit (langka)
  •  5 c. fresh coconut milk or fresh milk


  1. Boil thick coconut milk in a saucepan until the oil is extracted and the precipitate forms into a dark brown color. This is called latik.
  2. Drain the latik from the oil and set aside.
  3. Grease a 13-inch rectangular dish with coconut oil. Set aside.
  4. In a medium saucepan, blend rice flour, sugar, jackfruit (langka) and fresh coconut milk. Boil over slow heat, stirring constantly to prevent lumps, until mixture is clear for about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Pour hot mixture into prepared dish and allow to set.
  6. Sprinkle latik on top. Cool before slicing.


When rice flour is not available, soak 2 cups rice in 2 cups water overnight. Put through blender and process until smooth.
