Doukounou or Cornmeal Pudding; Tonmtonm or Puree of Breadfruit

Doukounou is what is called Cornmeal pudding in English. Since the doukounou is not sweet or savory, we usually eat it with a sweet sauce.

How do we make our doukounou?

We wrap small portions of a thick mixture of cornmeal in banana leaves. Then we steamed them for about 28-35 minutes.

What ingredients do we need to make enough doukounou or Cornmeal pudding for 6 or people?

We need the following ingredients: 1 medium cup of yellow cornmeal, 2 cups of whole milk, 2 cups of evaporated milk, 1 cup of fresh coconut milk, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 cup of whipping cream, 1 large egg beaten, 1 teaspoon puree vanilla extract.

Mix all of the above.


Make sure you grease the insert of the pudding mold with enough margarine.
