Filipinoy Cuisine:Yummy Yema Recipe

I'd like to share my special yummy yema recipe. Here we go!


6 egg yolks

1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/2 kilo white sugar


In a frying pan or pot, mix the egg yolks, condensed milk, and vanilla until well blended.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat to prevent the mixture from burning.

Using a metal spatula, stir the milk as if you are scraping the bottom of the pan. Stir constantly.

This must be done continuously to avoid burning the milk and to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

The mixture is ready when it forms a ball. Let it cool.

When cool, form the mixture into balls about 2 to 3 cm in diameter.

Place the yema balls on a wide plate with white sugar then roll; once coated, pick up each ball with a toothpick. Set aside to cool.

When cool, wrap the balls in cellophane and twist both ends to secure.

For a special kind of yema dessert, you can experiment and add some ingredients like crushed nuts of your choice and chocolates. You can also coat it with caramelized sugar.
