Ube Cake

Besides macarons, the most highly requested!

I have a few different ways I made ube cake and I’ll give you a couple. The first is the completely homemade way. The second is a super easy way great for those who are new to baking or in a hurry or just lazy and need a quick fix (sometimes that is me too)!

Ube cake (makes 12 cupcakes or a 6 inch cake)

*1/2 cup (one stick) butter
*3/4 cup sugar
*2 eggs
*2 tsp ube extract
*1 1/2 cups flour
*1/2 tsp baking powder
*1/4 tsp salt
*2/3 c cold milk

Preheat oven to 350 F
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs 1 at a time. Stir in ube. Add dry ingredients. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

Easier ube cake

*Just get a box of white cake mix and add a teaspoon or two of ube extract. Bake as directed according to the box. *This quick, easy recipe is courtesy of my baker friend, Trish who can be found on IG @sosweetbites. It’s really tasty and fluffy!

Coconut Buttercream

*2 cups of confectioner’s sugar
*1 stick of butter
*1 tbs milk
*1 tsp coconut extract

*Cream butter and extract, slowly add confectioner’s sugar on low speed, and add milk (more or less depending on what consistency you want).
