Ube Bread

So, here friends, I'm excited to share with you my first attempt to make ube bread... it's not as purple as other ube breads (maybe you could add more ube to make it look ube-esque), but this bread disappeared fast from my kitchen... Enjoy!

Ube Bread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for - flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Ube Bread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness - it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
