Ube Cake Composition
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the oil, egg yolk, milk, and ubi extract. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until foamy, mix it in the cream of tartar, and slowly add the sugar. Continue beating until a stiff paste forms. Add 1/4 of the egg whites to lighten the mixture. Gently fold in the rest in two equal parts until completely combined. Divide the cake batter into two halves with parchment-lined sides. Bake at 325F for 35-40 minutes.
Once the cake is thoroughly chilled, trim the top of the cake for a flat surface before frosting and assembling. Sift plain flour for a smoother cake batter. Always check the expiry date before using baking powder otherwise the cake will not be baked. Yubi has a very unique taste and doesn’t taste like anything else, so it’s something unique that you can really make for yourself. Place one cake on a serving plate, and spread 1/3 of the frosting evenly over the top. Place the second cake on top and spread the remaining frosting on top and around.
