This Pandan Yema is made with coconut condensed milk so it’s just a touch healthier than the original version.
When I started cooking for myself, one of the things I was obsessed with was this Filipino Candy called Yema. It’s a custard based candy that is made with condensed milk, egg yolks and some zest. It’s then covered with a thin layer of crunchy caramel.
Can I tell you I ruined many many pots making that darn caramel. I literally burned a hole through one. It was not pleasant.
Instead I found these salted caramel crumbles and mixing them in with the pandan powder gives it that crunch you need.
This version is dairy free using coconut condensed milk and flavored with pandan. Because I now have many fillings I omitted the caramel and just rolled them in more pandan powder.
To make it all you need are these 4 ingredients:
I’ve made this a few times and here are some pointers to get that perfect consistency.
I can’t wait to see how your Pandan Yema turns out. Please share it and tag @rezelkealoha!
