<>As previously mentioned, food businesses must be more innovative and creative enough to entice more customers this year. That is why it is not surprising to see many variations of our favorite kakanin, with different twists, usually combined with other desserts to make them better and more intriguing to the palate.

This season, prepare to give the traditional palitaw a new twist. Local foodies would surely like the idea of palitaw with filling. There is better way to make it more interesting than to combine it with another favorite local dessert---yema .

Combine palitaw and yema and you would have palitaw de leche. According to a TV magazine show, this idea started in Bulacan. Learn how to make it. Here’s the simple recipe.


For yema:

•    3 egg yolks
•    ½ can of sweetened condensed milk
•    ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract or essence

For palitaw:

•    2 cups of glutinous rice flour
•    1 cup of water
•    ½ cup of sugar
•    2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds

5.    Scoop a tablespoon or 2 tablespoons of the dough. Mold it into a ball before flattening it using your hands.

6.    Get a small scoop of yema and put it in the middle of the flattened dough.

7.    Enclose yema by wrapping the dough around it to form a ball.

8.    Boil some water in a cooking pit. Slowly put the dough pieces into it.
