    Made2order's Note:

    This coconut custard has the texture of a Filipino flan and a not too sweet taste that is absolutely wonderful! My husband is Puerto Rican and his family loves it! I like to use low-fat 1% milk, but whole, 2% and skim are just fine! If you use skim milk, the tembleque will take longer to set. Adding cinnamon sticks to the milk while cooking adds aroma and flavor! This recipe takes about 20 minutes of prep time and anywhere from 3-6 hours to set (depending on the milk you use). If you want to serve it soon, then add about 1/4 Cup cornstarch to the recipe and allow to bubble over heat while stirring constantly.
