Ube (purple yam) is a popular dessert in Philippines. I remember my mom used to cooked it as “meryenda” (snack) but I ate it morning, afternoon and evening ;-). For my Flavour no.2, I thought why not? Ube Cheesecake!
Well, I can use a preserve purple jam (yam) but i prefer to use a fresh one like my mom did when I was young (not too long ago 🙂 ) so, after looking around, I found a fresh roots in Asian Supermarket called (Sarawat).
I boiled and mashed it. Mixed it with evaporated milk, condensed milk, vanilla and margarine. For more authentic tagalog (Filipino) taste, I used star magarine.
I wished I can take pictures, steps by steps but it is hard to cook and take pictures in between,so here are my ingredients:
Basically all ingredients and directions are the same as flavour no. 1 ( Dulce de Leche Cheesecake) except I reduced the sugar to 1 cup only. I have to take care of my belly, this is only the second flavour, imagine after I am done with fifty flavours huh!
After testing the Ube cheesecake bites, I found reducing the sugar to 1 cup is not advisable. I guess 1 1/3 cup is alright as long as I reduced my bites and give all the remaining cheesecakes to my staff and neighbours , my happy belly is safe! 🙂
I was asked why I baked? Well, after a long day of fixing cavities on my patient’s tooth, making a new smile , it’s about time to fixed my own “Sweet tooth” yep! it is like a stress reliever, besides it is fascinating to find out, how the cakes will turn out, the taste, the decoration and the verdict of the taster , these are exciting to note.
After all the baking and eating..the sad part is to wash the dishes!
At the end of the day, I still love my job as a Cosmetic Dentist!
Thank you Ladies 😉
