Yema filled bread

Yema is a sweet, soft and delicious product that was made from the combinations of condensed milk, eggyolk and sugar. Through the years a lot of twists was made in order to make it more delicious and peculiar in taste. Some added crunchy crushed peanuts, butter and etc. It is used as stuffing for bread and also can be eaten as candy. This recalls me of my younger days, I really like eating this one.

I added evaporated milk and instead of only the yolk, I used the whole egg in this recipe in order for it to be cremier and tastier. Try this yema recipe with your bread preparation.

  • Wash your hands and prepare your ingredients and materials.
  • Cook the yema filling into a low medium heat using a yolk.
  • First to pour in the yolk is the condensed milk, second the sugar, third evaporated milk, whisked egg and last is the cornstarch.
