Directions

In a saucepan dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup coconut milk. Once dissolved add the rest of the coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Cook at medium-high heat stirring constantly! As it thickens, lower heat until it boils thick. Pour right away into wet molds, pans or cups. Cool and then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Carefully separate the tembleque from the mold using a knife. Turn it over unto a dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

I like to make this in silcone mini muffin tins- easy to pop out.

  • I like the idea of making it in a Silocone mini Muffin Tin. It is quite the challenge to be able to cut it smoothly and serve a nice "clean" piece. I add a little bit of water to my mixture, also add a Cinnamon Stick while cooking and Vanilla Extract for more flavoring. - 2/8/10
