For the love of ube! This homemade dessert is made with fluffy ube chiffon cake, ube cream, and ube halaya.

If ube is your number one u-bae, then you’re in for a purple yam-my treat with Malia Home Bakery’s best-selling homemade ube chiffon cake. Craving for ube? I got ube.

It’s a dessert that’s simple in concept but laudable in execution – Malia’s take on the humble ube cake is worth a try and recommended to share with family and friends.

It makes sense to use the well-loved Filipino ingredient as the star of the cake, as Malia’s menu is inspired by Filipino classics the family grew up with, made with passion by the owner’s grandmother, Amalia.

“We wanted to serve go-to goods that make you feel nostalgic when you see them on the table. We like to to keep it simple, straightforward,” Malia Home Bakery told Rappler. The ube cake is as straightforward as can be – everything is made from ube, but sans any umay.

Malia’s ube treat features a light, fluffy, and pillowy chiffon cake that’s flavored with real ube. There’s a layer of real homemade ube halaya that’s thick and creamy, and then another layer of delicately light ube whipping cream. Everything is topped with more dollops of ube-licious cream.

Each element is well-made, and all three combine to form the perfect ratio of cake, cream, and ube jam. The cake is hardly too sweet, and the taste of ube isn’t so overpowering that it overwhelms. It’s just enough to get an ube lover craving for another bite (or slice, no judgment).

Malia Home Bakery harvests their own ube from their family farm in Tagaytay. Their baking and delivery hub is based in Greenmeadows Village, Quezon City. They accept pick-up orders every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
