Yema is a classic ingredient when it comes to Filipino desserts. The egg yolk-based custard, likely originating from the Spanish era, has a sweet, creamy, and at this point, distinctly Pinoy flavor. It’s versatile enough to be used as a frosting, filling, flavoring, and even dip for a variety of baked goodies. You can even enjoy on it all on its own. The sheer number of yema desserts you can find in Manila is proof. In case you’re craving some at the mere mention of the rich custard, we went ahead and listed down some drool-worthy yema desserts you can get delivered right now!
