YEMA CAKE RECIPE

Most Filipino I know loves dessert. Every Filipino party you go you will always find cakes, leche flan, kutsinta and many more.

This Filipino dessert is made from 2 layer of cake coated with Yema frosting. It's like having 2 dessert in 1 and a very simple no-bake recipe. See step by step recipe below.


For Cake:
1 box white king (400 g.) cake mix or any vanilla cake in a box
2 eggs
 1 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat eggs first then add, milk and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Pour in cake mix. Mix well.
Pour mixture in baking pan. Cover tight with an aluminum foil and steam in medium low heat for 50-60 minutes or till fully cooked. Allow cake to cool before cutting in half.

 For Yema filling:
2 can condensed milk
or if you want it a little less sweeter use:
1 1/2 condensed milk
1/2 cup evaporated milk
4 eggs (2 whole and 2 egg yolks)
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 cup shredded cheese for garnishing
Beat eggs in a sauce pan. Add evaporated milk, condensed milk and vanilla extract.
Cook mixture while continuously stirring over low heat until becomes thick.
Remove pan from heat and allow to cool.

Spread 1/3 of the Yema mixture on the bottom side up of the cake. Spread evenly.
Place the other slice on top and spread the remaining Yema mixture making sure you cover the whole cake.  

 Sprinkle with grated cheese on top. Refrigerate before serving.
