Tembleque is a dessert made of coconut pudding with a smooth texture similar to flan. It is typically prepared in a decorative mould and served on a platter, and, just like Arroz con dulce, it is topped with cinnamon. The delicious dish can be prepared in cups for quick single servings. Try the tembleque, and you’ll be able to create the perfect Christmas treat.
Ingredients of Tembleque
2 (14 ounce) cans coconut milk
¾ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup cornstarch
1 pinch ground cinnamon
Mix the coconut milk mixture, sugar, and salt in a pan. Pour a couple of tablespoons of the mixture of coconut milk into a small bowl. Then stir the cornstarch mixture until it dissolves; then pour into the pan. Let the mix come to a simmer, stirring continuously to cook until the mixture is smooth and thick, around 5 minutes.
Put the mixture of coconut milk into molds. Cover each mold with plastic wrap and then refrigerate until it is firm and cold for 3 to two days.
Use a knife to cut all the sides of your mold, then turn it upside down onto a plate to get rid of it. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon.
