480mL(2 cups) soy milk
40g(4 tbsp) cornstarch
24g(2 tbsp) white sugar
2g(1 tsp) cinnamon for topping*
To a small saucepan over medium heat add soy milk, sugar, salt, and sift in cornstarch. Whisk until combined and smooth – the cornstarch should not be clumpy in the milk.
Whisk constantly until it just starts to come to a simmer. Once it JUST starts to simmer, turn down the heat to medium-low and continue to whisk until thickened to a yogurt-like consistency – it should take about 5-8 minutes.
Once thickened, pour the papas onto a shallow plate and sprinkle with cinnamon. Use more or less cinnamon to your taste. Allow to cool about 30 seconds before eating.
Pro tip: Eat from the edges working in. The centre is the hottest part, so eating it this way allows it to cool down.*use as much or as little cinnamon as you want here
