Makes: 12 doughnuts
1/2 cup sugar
12 pieces egg yolks

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar

In each llanera, place 3 tablespoons of sugar. Set llanera over the stove on low heat and using tongs, move llanera repeatedly over flames until sugar is melted and golden. Continuously tilt and swirl the llanera to ensure even melting and to distribute melted sugar on the bottom of the mold. Remove from heat and allow caramel to harden. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine egg yolks, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Gently stir until blended then strain. Pour strained mixture into prepared llaneras.
Cover the llaneras with foil. Arrange the llaneras in the steamer. Steam it for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to chill.
In a jug combine warmed milk and yeast, mix and let it foam up for 5-10 minutes.
