Maja Blanca

Maja Blanca

What's for dessert? I always remember the tall palm trees along the shore when I was in the Philippines. And those tall palm trees have a hundred and one uses. Not only that, it looks so romantic when its straight body bends on the shore. Others call it palm tree or coconut tree. Boy, as its leaves rush with the hush of the wind it makes me remember home sweet home. And remembering home, food would always come to mind. After dinner would you wonder what's for dessert? Here's an inexpensive and very delicious dessert you can share with your family. It is also very easy to prepare.
