Ube and ice cream bake

This delightful Ube Ice Cream Bake combines the unique, earthy sweetness of ube (purple yam) with the creamy, cool texture of ice cream, creating a dessert that's both visually stunning and delicious. Perfect for impressing guests or treating your family to something special!


  • 1 cup ube halaya (ube jam)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream (1 scoop per serving)
  • Optional toppings: toasted coconut flakes, crushed nuts, or fresh fruit


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined.
  4. Fold in the ube halaya and coconut milk into the batter until fully incorporated. The batter should have a smooth, even purple color.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Once the ube bake has cooled, cut it into 4 equal pieces. Place each piece on a serving plate and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Add optional toppings like toasted coconut flakes, crushed nuts, or fresh fruit if desired.

This Ube Ice Cream Bake is a delightful fusion of flavors and textures. The warm, slightly chewy ube bake pairs perfectly with the cold, creamy ice cream, making it a hit at any gathering. Enjoy this unique dessert with friends and family!
