Maja Blanca History
Maja Blanca is a popular Filipino dessert that can be traced back to a Spanish milk-based dessert manjar blanco, which means delicacy.
“Maja” means to pound or to make mush and the word “blanca” means white. It is said that, at that time, they would have to pound the coconut meat to extract the milk that would be used for this dessert.
The Filipinos then created a variation where it includes corn.
Traditionally, maja blanca is served or made during special occasions such as fiestas, weddings, and birthdays.
