For several years I worked with some guys from Puerto Rico and we always brought food to share. I loved a custard dish I thought they called "templack" or thats what it sounded like. It contained coconut milk and was a very smooth and sweet custard.I'd love to make it but losted the recipe when I moved here. Any idea what I'm talking about???

That would be "Tembleque".
mmmm..great desert..sometimes I use fresh coconut milk..sometimes canned milk [not coconut cream]. During Christmas time,Tembleque is always served. Enjoy.


4 cups coconut milk
cup of cornstarch
2/3 cup of sugar
tsp. salt
ground cinnamon

In a saucepan dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup coconut milk. Once dissolved add the rest of the coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Cook at medium-high heat stirring constantly! As it thickens, lower heat until it boils thick. Pour right away into wet molds, pans or cups. Cool and then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Carefully separate the tembleque from the mold using a knife. Turn it over unto a dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Makes about 12 servings.

I like to use the cinnamon 'peel'?? know..the sticks?..[don't laugh] don't know the name in english..anyway, just add two or three of 'those' and then boil the mix. Then sprinkle with the cinnamon powder after you pour it into the plates.

Actually cinnamon bark,
you could use it like the vanilla beans, then remove them.
I will do that, you would get the extra cinnamon flavor, thanks for the tip.
