Maja De Ube

These Maja de Ube are so delicious! You must try it too.. You only need around 6 main ingredients and a few extra seasoning. Throw it together in a wok and keep mixing it. Once you see a perfect smoothness and it looks shiny then you are ready to turn off heat.

Remember to give a small allowance, it becomes thicker as it gets cool.


3 cups fresh coconut cream, with no water added
1 cup fresh milk
1 cup evaporated milk/whole milk
1 cup water
5 pc pandan leaves
2 cups white sugar
4 cups ube pulp(yam),peeled,boiled and mashed finely
1 tbs salt
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup cornstarch


In a wok, mix all ingredients together thoroughly.
Make sure mixture is free of lumps. Cook in medium heat.

Turn to low when maja starts to boil. Stir continously to prevent mixture from scorching.
When mixture starts to glisten, maja is fully cooked.

Immediately transfer into baking casserole to set. Discard pandan leaves.
Slice and serve when cool.
Top with toasted grated coconut. Enjoy!
