  1. Place all the ingredients, except the vanilla and heavy cream, into a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until mixture has thickened (approximately 15 minutes). Stir in both the vanilla and heavy cream. Pour mixture into small glasses and decorate as desired. The cocada cremosa (pudding) can be served warm, at room temperature, or even chilled. Because this is a very sweet treat, I serve it in small glasses.
