Mango float, macaroons, yema candy, leche flan, cassava cake and ube jam are just some of my favorite desserts. These kind of desserts are easy to make. You could also sell it to your neighbors and friends to make an extra money. Here are some recipes that you can try at home.
Mango Float Recipe
Mango float is one of my favorite desserts. They are yummy and delicious too!
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
1 cup sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Thin slices of ripe mangoes
Crushed Graham Crackers
Blend cream and sweetened condensed milk together. Add vanilla. Set aside, preferably keeping it chilled until needed.
In a square 9 x 9-inch transparent dish, assemble graham crackers and cream mixture by arranging the crackers on the bottom of the dish.
Spread one third of the cream mixture, arrange some mango slices, then put another layer of the crackers. Repeat the process, ending with the Crushed Graham Crackers or with the cream mixture on top.
Sprinkle with chopped nuts (optional). Garnish with more slices of mangoes for a more festive appeal. Makes 9-12 servings.
1 can (390g) evaporated milk
1 can (390g) condensed milk
10 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or lemon essence
For the caramel:
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
In a saucepan, mix the sugar & water. Bring to a boil for a few minutes until the sugar caramelize.
Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum moulds – you can use any shape: oval, round or square. Spread the caramel on the bottom of the moulds.
Mix well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla by hand or blender.
Gently pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the aluminum moulds. Fill the moulds to about 1 to 1 1/4 inch thick.
Cover moulds individually with aluminum foil.
Steam for about 20 minutes OR
Bake for about 45 minutes. Before baking the Leche Flan, place the moulds on a larger baking pan half filled with very hot water. Pre-heat oven to about 370 degrees before baking.
Let cool then refrigerate.
To serve: run a thin knife around the edges of the mould to loosen the Leche Flan. Place a platter on top of the mould and quickly turn upside down to position the golden brown caramel on top. Recipe found at: Filipino Food Recipe
Simple Yema Recipe
How to Make Yema is so simple.
1 can condensed milk
12 egg yolks
Mix condensed milk and egg yolks in a sauce pan (a double boiler – which is basically a small pan inside a big pan containing water – works wonder for this). Cook mixture under medium – high heat, stirring continuously until the mixture coagulates and separates from the pan. Cool. Shape into pyramids and wrap with cellophane cut into squares.
