Yocto make not found alternative?

So I've made an image using Yocto and loaded it on an IMX6QPSABRESD board. I have then copied some tests (tests that I need to run to evaluate the platform) using the second SD card and then mounted it on the board. To begin my tests I have to run 'make'. However, I realised that Yocto doesn't support make. Instead it uses bitbake.

But bitbake, from the documentation I looked up, is about adding recipes. And recipes have to be added during image compilation. They cannot be added once the image is built already. My make command (in my test) does not generate C files that I can use, it simply opens up an elevated prompt from where tests can be run. How do I get these tests to run on the embedded board, since I cannot use 'make' ?


Its probably a very noob/basic question, but one that I couldn't find an answer to.

My alternative would be to use build-root. But I'd really rather just finish it with Yocto. This is the last step of my project and I really don't want to start all over again.
