This is a great Filipino purple yam cake.
have a lil' question... what do you mean by 1 cup ube "cooked and finely grated" do i have to cook it first? how can i grate it if i cooked it? or is the frozen ok? thank you!!! - 11 Sep 2010
I didn't add the light corn syrup but i added another 2/3 cup of sugar instead. The cake was very moist. - 15 Jun 2017
Note: Ube (pronounced "OOH-bee") is also available in a jar, precooked and mashed. It can also be found in a packet in the frozen section. Many Asian stores sell either form of ube. Sometimes its labeled as "ube" or "purple yam". - 21 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
