Ube and cheese belong is a great combo, the same way strawberries and chocolate complement each other. There's nothing like the sweet, earthy flavor of the ube mingling with the salty flavors of cheese.

If you have an obsession with anything ube-and-cheese, then you'll most likely enjoy taking a bite off these pastries:

1 Ube Cheese Pretzel Bites


Don't know where to get merienda? Treat yourself to Auntie Anne's Ube Cheese Bites (P95)! These small bite-sized pretzels are filled with ube and topped with grated cheese. The Ube Cheese Bites are soft to bite, while the creamy ube explodes and blends with the cheesy topping.

2 Ube Cheese Pandesal


If you ever find yourself in the south, you should definitely pass by Bungalow Cafe & Bakery in Alabang for their Ube Cheese Pandesal (P35 each). This Filipino breakfast staple is flavored with ube while the inside is filled with melted cheese (just make sure you ask the server to heat the pandesal upon ordering).

Bungalow Cafe & Bakery is located at Molito Complex, 1780 Madrigal Avenue, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Follow Bungalow Cafe + Bakery on Facebook and Instagram for more information.

3 Ube Cheese Sponge Cake


Ah Mah, a popular sponge cake shop in Singapore, recently added the Ube Cheese Sponge Cake to their menu. This thick (super thick!) sponge cake uses locally-sourced halaya that gives it the distinct sweet flavor and purple hue, while the cheese is incorporated by having a layer of melted cheese and a generous amount of grated cheese on top.

You can grab a taste of Ah Mah Homemade Egg Sponge Cake's Ube Cheese Sponge Cake at their Robinsons Magnolia and SM North EDSA, Quezon City branches.

4 Ube Cheese Rolls


Buttery & Co released Ube Cheese Rolls (P510/a box of 6 or P1,120/a dozen), basically an ube-flavored cheese roll, for Christmas 2019 and Valentine's Day 2020. What makes this ube cheese roll extra special is that it's topped with an ube-flavored cookie crust that's sweet, earthy, and crunchy. 

This isn't available as of the moment, but just in case Buttery & Co decides to make this available again, you should follow their official Facebook and Instagram for updates.
