Notes

For a creamier haupia, replace 1 cup of water with 1 cup of whole milk.

Or try a Lilikoi Swirled Haupia: Reserve 1 cup of hot haupia and mix 2 oz of Passion Fruit Juice Base. Randomly drop over hot haupia. Use a small pairing knife to swirl in a circular motion. Store covered with plastic wrap as previously mentioned.
