This is an interesting desert that recipe that I came across and then modified to my own needs. I've never had real Haupia so please excuse me if I'm totally screwing this one up. Whatever the case, this is a really tasty dessert by it's own right.
Traditional Haupia is a thick coconut pudding where you make the coconut milk from scratch from fresh coconuts. We are going to fake it though.
how much conrstarch!?!? Yep, there really IS a whole cup of cornstarch in this recipe. It sounds nuts but it works out fine. You'll see.
