Eat My Ube Cupcake



It is that time again folks, a time to over indulge in some sweets while giving back to your community. It is time for Eat My Blog, a charity bakesale hosted by fellow Angelino bloggers Cathy Dahn of Gastronomy Blog and Diana Hossfeld of Diana Takes a Bite. All proceeds from the bakesale go to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The innagural Eat My Blog bakesale was held last winter and was a huge success. Eat My Blog gathers food bloggers, restaurant owners, chefs, bakers and the like to contribute sweet goodness to raise money to help fight hunger. Last year I contributed Let Me Eat Cake oatmeal sandwich cookies. They were a hit and I had a blast being part of this amazing event.

For this year's second annual Eat My Blog charity bakesale I will be donating ube cupcakes with a coconut buttercream frosting from The Manila Machine (LA's first and only Filipino food truck- my food truck!). We are excited to contribute and hope that you all come down and share in the fun. It is going to be a sweet time for a good cause. Come enjoy a plethora of confections and meet some bloggers. I will be working 10am-1pm so make sure to say hi!

Now you can drool over this preview of the cupcakes I will be bringing...



You can find the Manila Machine ube cupcake recipe here, but why bake them visit us on the truck and you can enjoy theses plus many many more delicious Filipino eats!

  7. These are awesome! I know this a weird question but are you half Filipino and half Caucasian? I was trying to figure out the Filipino connection!

  10. I don't know where I can find ube extract, can I just replace it with fresh ube or ube jam?
