On the off chance that you’ve at any point been to a Filipino party, you’ve likely run over delightfully sweet treats enveloped with brilliantly hued cellophane. Whether you make it at home or get it from a store or market, this yema recipe will catch the core of any Filipino, youthful and old. I even believe it to be one of my main 3 most loved Filipino treats!
Thick and tacky and very sweet, one of the most unmistakable parts of yema is its brilliant yellow tone. Yema is a Filipino treat we love that comes from the Spanish word for “egg yolk.” A few reports express that during the Spaniards’ time, individuals utilized egg whites in a development blend to make recently fabricated holy places more strong. Therefore, many egg yolks went to squander. At the point when they combined as one the extra yolks and sugar, this is the manner by which the candy was conceived!
Yema kept on turning into a Filipino pastry staple, and Filipinos started to put their own twist on it. This incorporates the fixings utilized. Milk turned into one more part of the dish when Filipinos figured out how to bubble it to draw out that practically rich taste we as a whole love.
So we know the word yema itself alludes to egg yolk. Be that as it may, strangely, the yema in this recipe doesn’t call for egg yolk by any stretch of the imagination. With just dense milk and cooked peanuts, you can have your own special custom made yema candy – – smooth, rich, and delicious!
The Christmas season might be finishing, however there will never be a terrible opportunity to furnish everyone around you for certain snackable desserts. The bits of yema I’m accustomed to making are huge in size. They make for an extraordinary gift for companions, collaborators, and, surprisingly, your friends and family. Be that as it may, in more modest dosages, these scrumptious treats can likewise assist you with sending off your own private venture. With this simple to follow recipe you’ll have individuals rushing to purchase your yema candy in record time.
Yema can come in heaps of various shapes. One of the most famous is the pyramid-molded ones I’m making in this recipe. My recipe for Yema Balls has the sweets in a round shape, ideal for simply popping in your mouth. Those have a more extended planning time since there are more fixings. Be that as it may, from little square shapes to blocks to even trapezoidal pieces, yema can be delighted in any shape. Tell me how you like to shape your yema.

Like I referenced before, this hand crafted yema recipe just has two primary fixings. These are the 2 little jars of consolidated milk and 3 tablespoons of hacked peanuts. Others add fixings like ocean salt, squashed treats, and even bean stew pepper to put a contort on the notable sweet treat – – however you can never turn out badly with the works of art!
I attempt to get the most financial plan accommodating peanuts I can find. Be that as it may, yema itself is a truly versatile recipe. On the off chance that you’re not a nut individual or have sensitivity to them, the recipe works similarly too even with only the dense milk.
Need a more sosyal variant? Have a go at subbing the peanuts for (skinless) almonds! In any case, regardless of what sort of nuts you’re utilizing for your yema candy, ensure that they’re marginally simmered sufficient that their variety is a beautiful brilliant brown.
Whenever you’ve hacked your nuts and completed broiled them in your container, put them away. Pour in your 2 jars of dense milk and let it bubble at a medium intensity. Then, at that point, mix it reliably for 10 minutes.
Following 10 minutes, cut the intensity down and include your hacked nuts, mixing again for an additional 10 minutes. For yema, consistency is critical – – nothing beats the tacky, glue like surface of this treats.
Whenever you have accomplished that consistency, move your yema to a bowl. Then, begin wrapping your confections separately in cellophane. I had cut my cellophane with 4×4 aspects, however you’re allowed to cut yours as large or as little as you need. This relies upon the size of yema you’re later. This part is where your hands could need to get somewhat tacky – – yet it’s all worth the effort! At the point when you’ve at last allowed your desserts to chill off, presently you have your own exceptional hand crafted yema!
Since it contains a dairy item, it is ideal to refrigerate your yema and consume them, while possibly not immediately, essentially a couple of days later. If you have any desire to change up your treat spread, there are a few other Filipino sweets – – from leche flan to polvoron to pastillas – – that can speak to you and your friends and family’s inclinations.
