½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
½ cup cornstarch
2 cans (13½ ounces each) coconut milk
Zest of 1 medium orange
1 teaspoon cinnamon
In a medium saucepan, whisk together ½ cup of the sugar and the cornstarch. Whisk in the coconut milk, orange zest and salt, then set over medium-high heat. Whisk until simmering and thickened. Pour the pudding into a 9-by-9-inch baking dish or individual ramekins.
In a small bowl or cup, mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over the pudding, then cover and refrigerate until set and completely chilled, about 2 hours.
