|The purple colour of the cake is from the purple yam.|
"Ube" is purple yam in english. It is the main ingredient of Ube cake. This is just your basic chiffon cake in which finely grated ube is mixed into "heavy" part of the cake batter which contains the egg yolk, flour, baking powder, cooking oil, milk, and sugar.
This ube macapuno cake is so light and moist you will be able to finish the whole cake by yourself ( I am speaking from experience). I frosted it with coconut buttercream, filled with macapuno filling and topped it off with sweetened grated coconut. Please leave a comment.
