Sweet Corn and Coconut Pudding – Brazilian Dessert for Summer

My friend Regina, who used to blog at Molly Mel, is a regular contributor of recipes to my website.  I loved her blog, and especially today, because of both this amazing recipe and the gorgeous pictures of her peonies in bloom.

They put mine to shame!  This recipe for sweet corn and coconut pudding just screams summer and is inspired by a traditional Brazilian recipe called curau.

Regina modified the ingredients and quantities to make for a richer and more creamy textured pudding.  It is delicious and refreshing recipe and just screams summer time.This Sweet corn and coconut pudding is the perfect rich and creamy summer time sweet. My friend Regina shared it for my readers to enjoy.
