Visiting Lola in Cabanatuan was one of our task that needs to be done while here in the Philipines. And a visit to Cakeland is a must. It's where we would get our baked goddie fixed. And the yema cake caught our eye. We've been wondering what the fuss is all about. Friends and family have been raving about it on Facebook, and unfortunately San Diego has not caught on, unless we've been to lazy to hunt it.
By the way, yema is a sweet custard confectionary from the Philippines. It is made with egg yolks, milk, and sugar. The name yema is from Spanish for "egg yolk". As a kid, my mom and grandma would make these a treat and wrap em in a plastic colored celophane. Small community stores would also sell these.
But upon trying it out, and since we've been on the Keto diet, the sweetness was just overwhelming. We have a video review to show our take on this gooey goodness.
