Servings: 10
Author: Eduardo Joven

Ingredients

1st Layer Coconut:

  • ½ cup corn starch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 can 400ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. sweet corn kernels drained

2nd Layer Ube:

  • ½ cup corn starch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 can 400ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. ube extract
  • 3 tbsp. sweet corn kernels drained

Topping:

  • ¼ cup grated cheese

Instructions

  • First we need to prepare an 8×8 inch pan and lightly greased with oil and set aside.
  • Coconut Layer: In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and stir well to dissolve the sugar and corn starch. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stir continuously until you reach the sticky consistency.
  • Now, we’re going to make our Ube Layer: Using the same saucepan, combine all ingredients and stir well to dissolve the sugar and corn starch. Again, bring to a boil over medium heat, stir continuously until you reach the same consistency with your first batch.
  • Then, fire off and pour the Ube mixture on top of your coconut mixture. Spread and flatten evenly as possible and top with grated cheese. Set aside and let it cool at room temperature, before serving.
