Tembleque

Recipe by COOKGIRl

Adapted from a recipe from Associated Press. My changes are in parenthesis below. I replaced a portion of the coconut milk with coconut cream. The rose water and orange blossom water are my addition and are optional. You can substitute pure vanilla extract or a little bit of vanilla bean paste instead.

This was a simple dessert. Not quite what I was expecting, but nice and light. It reminded me of kafta, with the orange blossom and rose waters.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup of the sugar and the arrowroot. Whisk in the coconut cream, coconut milk and salt, then set over medium heat. Whisk until simmering and thickened-do not boil! Reduce heat if necessary.
  2. Remove from the stove and stir in the orange zest, rose water and orange blossom water. Pour the pudding into a 9-by-9-inch baking dish or individual ramekins. (I used ramekins).
  3. In a small bowl or cup, mix together the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar with the cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over the pudding, then cover and refrigerate until set and completely chilled, about 2 hours.
