Ube Bread (Purple Yam Bread) with Cinnamon Streussel

Joey (my son): Mom make some Zucchini bread.

Me: I don't think I ever made one yet.

Joey: Oh yeah, you haven't but Nicci's mom made some and it was good!

Me: Let me get the recipe and I'll make it sometime.

Joey: You could make your own version mom. I think it's like banana bread; just replace the bananas with Zucchini

That's when an idea popped in my head. Since I didn't have any zucchini in stock but had a bag of frozen grated ube (purple yam), then why not make ube bread instead.

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-usque) but this bread disappeared fast from my kitchen... enjoy!

Ube Bread with Cinnamon Streussel
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup sugar
1tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice
1 cup grated ube
1 cup milk

For the streussel:
1/4 cups flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt


Pre-heat oven at 350 F.

Grease pan with butter.

Make the streusel by stirring together sugar, flour, and salt and cinnamon. With a pastry blender, cut butter  until mixture is course. 

In a mixing bowl,  mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Add in salt and sugar.

In another bowl place the grated purple yam.  Pour in the milk and beat the eggs.  Add the flour mixture little by little.  Add vinegar and mix thoroughly.

Pour into a baking pan.  Add the streusel on top of the ube bread.

Bake for about 30 - 40 minutes. Let it cool.


  1. I will definitely try this.I think too that I will follow your advice on adding more ube.
    Thanks Malou


  2. Looks delicious Malou, wish I had the power to teleport so I can be in your kitchen to taste your fare and back again here with my family after a couple of hours of eating, hehe. :)

  3. Cecille,
    hello and welcome back. Yep add more ube for flavor and color. Good luck!

    Guica, I would love to have you over where we could share food and chit chat.. i wish you could teleport right now then hihihi.

  4. You are a genius! What a great idea and I bet is was gone fast :) It really looks fantastic and moist :)

  5. Grand idea - zucchini is not exactly in season. And I can count this as one serving of vegetables, right? Happy New Year Malou! May 2012 bring joys.
