Best Homemade Yema Cake Recipe

While the Rodillas started the yema cake trend more than a decade ago, yema, it’s creamy frosting, has a Spanish origin.

Yema means egg yolk in Spanish. During the Spanish colonial period, egg whites were used to hold stone walls together. Not letting egg yolks go to waste, Filipinos used them to make yema. 

Back then, people made yema by simply heating and stirring egg yolks and sugar. People later added condensed milk to the mix.

This yema cake recipe is one of the best recipes you can find. With extra ingredients to make your yema cake and frosting special, you won’t regret trying this out. After all, yema cake is one of the best Filipino desserts
