  1. Place the cornstarch, sugar, and salt into a saucepan; stir in 1/4 of the coconut milk to make a smooth paste. Stir in the remaining coconut milk, and bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thickened so that it coats the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish; refrigerate until cold.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If you can't find canned coconut milk, you can make your own by pouring 2 cups boiling water over 4 cups grated coconut. Let stand for 20 minutes; strain and measure coconut milk.

This is my longest review ever... Sorry! I've never had haupia but I had a can of coconut milk in the pantry and this looked like a simple recipe. Upon reading the previous comments, I decided...

this was very easy, I scaled the recipe down to serve 18 so I could just us a can of coconut milk. I put it in an 8x8 pan and it was very thin. Growing up I remember eating haupia like a jello...

First off, I'd like to say ALOHA to Ms Hawaiian Deelit. Hey, I used to live in Kingsland, GA too! Now the other day, bf and I got together and made a mini-feast of lau lau, limu poke, lomi salm...

Used arrowroot instead of cornstarch and used half coconut sugar and half white sugar for the white sugar. It was yummy. will make again

People loved this, and ate half the pan before I could set it out for the luau for my friend's birthday. Definitely like the stuff I've had in Hawai'i.

Tasted just like the real thing. Love, love, loved the recipe and was surprised by how easy it was to make!
