  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup ube (purple yam) jam
  • Purple food coloring (optional)
  • 1 batch ube whipped cream (for frosting)
  • Additional ube jam for filling (optional)
  • Ube-flavored macapuno strings (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare two 8-inch round cake pans by greasing and lining them with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients.
  6. Stir in the ube jam until well combined. Add purple food coloring if desired for a more vibrant color.
  7. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once the cakes are completely cooled, carefully slice each cake in half horizontally to create four layers.
  11. Place one layer of the cake on a serving plate and spread a thin layer of ube jam on top. Repeat this process with the remaining layers.
  12. Frost the entire cake with the ube whipped cream, making sure to cover the sides as well.
  13. Decorate the cake with additional ube jam and macapuno strings if desired.
  14. Refrigerate the cake for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
