Haupia on a plateI'm in love with a new dessert! I was introduced to this in Maui. It was awesome. I couldn't get enough of it when I first tried it at Aloha Mixed Plate. Now that I'm home, I had to try to make one. So I made some adapting from this recipe. Yum! It was super creamy but not as coconuty as the one I had at the restaurant. Maybe if I use coconut extract instead of the rum. But then, I'd have to go get some coconut extract and what else would I use it on??? :\

Careful when you heat everything though. Once it starts thickening, it'll thicken super fast even after you turn off the heat. So keep an eye on it!

(serves 8)

  • 1 400ml (13.5oz) can of coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp coconut rum
  • Toasted shredded coconut (optional)

    Haupia about to be chilled
  1. Dissolve cornstarch in coconut milk in a medium pot. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat everything on low heat until mixture has thickened, stirring constantly.
  3. When thicken, pour mixture into a loaf pan.
  4. Cover and chill for overnight or until firm.
  5. Cut into 1x2 inch pieces and serve with toasted shredded coconut (optional).
