Ube is such a big part of Filipino cuisine, especially desserts, that you could probably see a purple dessert on nearly every Pinoy restaurant’s menu. And the ube trend has taken over the rest of the world to the point that halo-halo has been served in Coachella and so many new ube-centered recipes have popped up in international kitchens. Check out these unique ube desserts we’re sure you’d want to try. You’d really wish you thought of these sooner.

This bakery brings the tres leches game to the next level. Not only did they put the Pinoy favorite ube into the tres leches mix, they also placed a layer of creamy leche flan in between. Talk about mouthwatering.

Did you think the previous cake was already so Pinoy? It is since it mixes classics, but this one takes, well, the cake. Halo-halo is that quintessential Pinoy dessert that a lot of foreigners try remaking, and who would’ve thought you could turn it into a cake?

Price starts at PHP 850

Everybody knows ube and macapuno go well together. But this new and creamier twist takes the heavenly combination higher. And it’s served so aesthetically, too. (Their ube champorado is also a must-try!)
