Ube Chiffon Cake is one of my favorites. I just love the deep purple color.
I have been wanting to bake an Ube Chiffon Cake for a while now but I’ve had quite a hard time finding Ube jam here in Singapore. In fact, I only managed to find it by luck as one day it turned up out of the blue in my local supermarket! I bought 2 BIG jars! I know making from the scratch is always better but these two Ube jams will do me good for now.
Let me tell you about Ube or Purple Yam as its also known. It’s a root vegetable that has a strong violet color and is sweet when cooked just like a sweet potato. In the Philippines Ube (Purple Yam) is very popular in many desserts. It’s found in cakes, ice cream, candy, bread fillings and even in Halo-Halo.
