Serves 4

Haupia

  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons shredded coconut, toasted

Mango Compote

  • 1 mango, peeled, cut away from pit, and diced small
  • 1 small lime, washed
  • 1 teaspoon orange blossom honey, heated until thin

For haupia:

  1. Combine 1/2 cup coconut milk and cornstarch in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Combine remaining coconut milk, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Drizzle cornstarch mixture slowly into saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking vigorously (do not let boil), until mixture is very thick and no longer tastes floury, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Pour into 4 (1/2-cup-capacity) ramekins; cover with plastic wrap, pressing plastic wrap directly onto surface of coconut milk mixture.
  4. Refrigerate 2 hours. Garnish with toasted coconut.

For mango compote:

  1. Place mango in a medium bowl. Zest lime into bowl; stir to combine.
  2. Stir in honey. Serve with haupia.

Cook’s note: Mangoes have a hard, oblong pit that runs through the narrow center. To easily cube the fruit, cut each round “cheek” away from pit, score with a paring knife, and cut fruit away from peel.
