Yema Cupcakes

Yema Cupcakes (adapted from Arcelly’s Yema Cake, a member of Bake Happy Manila FB Page)- I halved the recipe for the cupcakes and frosting to yield 24 cupcakes

Ingredients and Procedure
2 ½ cups cake flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup granulated sugar
- Mix everything together and set aside

8 egg yolks
½ cup oil
½ cup water
½ cup sweetened orange juice(I used Del Monte)
- Add them to the dry ingredients. Mix well then set aside This will be your batter mixture

Meringue Mixture
8 egg whites
1 tsp cream of tartar
½ cup sugar(add gradually when your egg whites+cream of tartar become frothy)
- Beat till soft peaks form then fold in to your batter mixture

Pour batter into individual baking cups. Bake for 12-15 minutes on a pre-heated oven at 325’F

Yema Frosting (adapted from Aikko’s Bake Happy blog)
2 cans condensed milk
6 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs butter
300 ml water
1 tbs cornstarch
1 cup grated cheese

Prepare the frosting by opening 2 cans of condensed milk and pour it over a pan. Add the cornstarch to the prepared water and mix till there were no more lamps. Add it to the condensed milk followed by the egg yolks, mix well and cook in low heat. Add in vanilla. Cook until it thickens and juggly enough to spread. Add in butter. Cool for a while to thicken it more.

Pour Yema Frosting over cooled cupcakes and top with grated cheese.
