Ube cake… don’t miss out!
When Ken and I were living in the Philippines, I am pretty sure I never made an Ube Cake for him, as it is so much cheaper, in the long run, to simply go out and buy one. Red Ribbon is a for a sure place in the Philippines to get your cakes at. Also, we never had an oven so there were so many recipes I could not do, and I told him how I wanted an oven.
For his birthday this year, I had someone make him an Ube Cake, as I was so busy with the new job I did not have time, and boy did he ever like it! We Filipino’s have love Ube, you can find it in Halo-Halo, there is Ube Ice Cream as well, of course, Ube Cake.
In this recipe, I use actual Ube in the dish, though I add Ube flavoring as well. I suggest you use whatever every you are able to afford, and/or have the time to do. It does not matter as this is one outstanding cake for you to enjoy.
There is one thing to be sure desserts from the Philippines are not over the top sweet like so many of the sugary heavy cakes I find here in Canada. This cake is light and airy with a really nice flavor. Be sure to give it a try, and leave your comments below on what you think of the cake. Stop by our Desserts section of the blog and give other recipes a try! Cheers
