Soft donuts meet ube whipped cream, ube halaya, and cheese in one sweet dessert

Combine ube, cream, cheese, and donuts and you get this Manila bakery’s bestselling pastry: the ube cheese donut.

BUNappetite bakes their ube cheese donuts fresh daily – from the soft, light donut to the fluffy, ube-flavored whipped cream. If you’re a fan of the ube-cheese combo (plus a sucker for donuts), you’re in for a sweet treat!

BUNappetite uses soft, chewy, traditional donuts split in half, lightly dusted with powderedd sugar. In between is a generous serving of light, fluffy, and sweet whipped cream that’s pureed with homemade ube halaya, and topped with a big, solid chunk of pure ube halaya. Get to the center of the donut and you’ll find a savory surprise of melted cheddar cheese that works. Note: there’s more ube than cheese here.

BUNappetite’s ube cheese donuts cost P280 for a box of 6 and P540 for a dozen. They’re freshly-baked every day, so it’s best to pre-order.

BUNappetite is located along Juan Luna Street, Tondo, Manila. You can place your orders via their Facebook page. –
