#CookMe: A Very Corny and Cheesy Maja

Well its good to be back! And because I know you missed me very much, I came back with a little offering for my beloved, non-existent readers. Like my previous recipe here, I partnered with Jolly and created a very corny and cheesy Maja Blanca,

Maja Blanca is a very understated Pinoy dessert. Due to western influences, our celebratory desserts will always be either cake, fruit salad, graham cake, or leche flan. Although always over shadowed by the aforementioned desserts, I have loved Maja Blance ever since, and I think it's time the we give this dessert some love.

I have made Maja Blanca in the past, thrice actually. The first time, I added too little cornstarch so the Maja didn't form properly. The second one, I added enough cornstarch and achieved a firm Maja. The third time, last New Year's Eve, I added too much cornstarch, it turned out to be almost Champorado like. So for this recipe, I decided to add the gelatin powder to make sure that my Maja Blanca will be as firm. Let's star!


1 can of Jolly Cream of Corn. Jolly Corn Kernel, Jolly Coconut Milk, Jolly Cow Condensed Milk
1 can of Evaporated Milk
1 box of Cheese
1 box of Unflavored Gelatin Powder
1 small box of Cornstarch


1, Clean the pot and other utensils you need. Clean you work space (kitchen).

2. Boil 1 can of Jolly Coconut Milk over low heat. Once its roll boiling, add the evaporated milk and the condensed milk. Make sure to stir occasionally to avoid burning.

3. Once the milk mixture in roll boiling, add 1 can of Jolly Cream of Corn and 1 can of Jolly Corn Kernel, Stir occasionally and allow to boil. Make sure to taste. Add sugar if needed (according to how sweet you want it)

4. Dissolve the cornstarch and gelation powder in a cup of water (or milk). Add the mixture to the pot stirring occasionally. Allow the mixture to boil for about 5 - 10 minutes.

5. Transfer the mixture to a tray or pyrex and grate the cheese over.

6. Allow to cool in the fridge for about an hour. Serve

I want to give a shoutout to Jolly for giving me awesome and quality ingredients. My Maja Blanca was a blockbuster! Also to Mommy Jhanis for the the invite. Here's to hoping for more collaborations with you guys!
