WATCH: How to Make Yema Cake

Glaze a cake with an all-time Filipino favorite: yema.

 

This recipe uses all-time Filipino favorite, yema, as the glaze for a creamy and delicious dessert recipe. 

 

To make the cake:
4 egg, whites only
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
4 egg, yolks only
1/3 cup full cream milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
lemon zest, optional

 

To make the yema glaze:
14 oz condensed milk
3 egg, yolks only
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
cheese, (grated), for garnish (optional)

 

1 Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat at 350ºF. Line the bottom of a 6-inch square cake pan with parchment paper.

 


2 To make the cake, place the egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean mixing bowl and beat for 2 minutes or until they reach soft peaks. Put mixer on medium speed: slowly add sugar and whip for another 2 minutes until the whites are glossy and still hold soft peaks.

 

3 In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and mix well with a wire whisk.

 

4 In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks, milk, vanilla, oil, and lemon zest until they are combined. Add the flour mixture and beat on medium until everything is well-combined

 

5 Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the whipped egg whites into the flour mixture in batches. Do not overmix.

 

6 Transfer the batter into your prepared pan. Alternatively, split the batter evenly into two pans. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top springs back when pressed lightly and the top of the cake doesn't stick to your fingertips. Let the cake rest for a minute in the pan before turning it out to cool on a wire rack. Gently peel off the parchment and let the cake cool to room temperature.

 

7 Make the yema glaze: combine the condensed milk, egg yolks, salt, and vanilla in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens into a smooth and spreadable filling.

 

8 Spread yema glaze onto cooled cakes. If desired, sprinkle grated cheese on the top of the cake.
