To begin our preparation, place the sugar, lemon juice and 5 spoonfuls of water in a saucepan over medium heat, to make the caramel that we will place in the bottom of the mould that we will use. This step will take about 15 minutes. Let it cook without stirring, for this time until we have a honey-colored caramel.

While the caramel is being made, while keeping an eye on it, we chop the yucca into very small pieces, since we are going to process it in the blender, or if you have a processor, you can do it there, we place the yucca, the egg, and the salt in the blender.
