7 Yema Recipes You Need To Satisfy Your Cravings
Thickened condensed milk never tasted this good.
Yema, in its most basic form, is condensed milk thickened with egg yolks. It’s an excuse to eat the beloved condensed milk in a more solid form–the yema candy. So, if you’re feeling nostalgic for your childhood days of eating this simple yet luscious candy, here are all the recipes you need to satisfy every kind of yema craving:
1 Yema Candy
If you have never tried to make yema from scratch before, it’s a good start to know how to create your favorite candy.
2 Yema Cakes
Recreate the same flavors of yema in a cake: what you get is a dessert is a tender cake topped with a thickened yema spread. You can sprinkle it with grated cheese, too!
3 Chocolate Yema Cakes
Chocolate and milk naturally go together, so it’s no wonder that this cake is the result of that dessert combo. The chocolate is stirred into the cake while a spreadable yema filling tops the cake, making it an extra rich and indulgent treat.
4 Salted Caramel Yema
If you’re thinking how yema could possibly be made even better, you’ve never had the salty and sweet combo in one treat. Each yema candy ball is coated in the salty caramel, enhancing the richness and sweetness of the yema.
5 Yema Spread
Why stop at merely candy and baked desserts? This yema version is made spreadable so that you can eat it slathered on bread. It's perfect for spooning straight from the jar or spreading on bread whenever the craving hits. Best part is, it tastes just like the candy.
