Creamy Yema Cake

GAAAHHHD! When will this Summer heat end?! Let’s admit it mommies, even if we just took a bath, paglabas ng banyo — hulas at pawis na agad tayo.  It’s really super hot these days and because of that I almost don’t want to stay in the kitchen and cook. But, everyone’s at home — eating, snacking, and dessert-ing!

As a mom, we always make sure our chikitings and their daddy have merienda and dessert ready. So even if the kitchen is scorching hot, I made this CREAMY YEMA CAKE.

Ssshhh, don’t tell anyone but I cheated a little when I made this. I just bought our favorite chiffon loaf (a.k.a. taisan loaf) so that I won’t have to bake and just cook the super duper easy Yema Frosting. I saved work, time, effort and avoided that annoying kitchen heat.

Guess what? the kids loved it! Winner sa kids ang lasa ng cake dahil mas pina-creamy ang frosting! They even helped put the frosting on the “cake”.


And we have lots of “extra” Yema Frosting too!

So we put some on our slices! Sarap with coffee!

Try nyo to at home ha! I promise you won’t regret making this.
