Yema Kasuy is a custard candy made from egg yolk, milk and nuts. A typical yema is only made from egg yolk and milk but you can make a different variation like adding some fruits or nuts. Yema is not only a favorite dessert but also makes a great pasalubong or present to your loved ones and friends. This can also be a good home business for anyone especially mothers who want to make an extra income.
Here is a simple Yema Kasuy recipe.
– 5 egg yolks
– 1 (380g) condensed milk
– 3 tbsp chopped toasted cashew nuts (you could also use peanuts or any nuts you want)
