Spring is finally here, and I really wanted to do a vegan pound cake recipe. However, I didn’t want to create something that’s been done a million times. Although, I won’t deny a delicious lemon pound cake! Anyway, I really wanted to create something with ube, but I didn’t want it to be just a pure ube pound cake. So, the idea of a vegan ube marble cake came to mind, and, obviously, I made it happen!
Pronounced as: “OO-BEH”, ube is a purple yam and is a staple ingredient for Filipino desserts. For example, they are usually boiled and mashed and are used a lot in jams or to color sweet treats. It has a mild and sweet flavor, which some have said is a cross between vanilla and pistachio. Another thing, do not mistake ube as a purple sweet potato or taro. These 3 are completely different from each other. Ube is a purple yam, and not a potato, while taro is a root that comes from the taro plant. It’s a light lavender color and completely inedible when raw.
