Meet Ube Misu: An Ube-Meets-Tiramisu Dessert
Milk tea-flavored tiramisu is also available!
If you love anything ube, one of the bakeshops you should know about is Bellefleur by Beatrix. Bea Atienza, a big ube fan,¬†offers a selection of ube desserts such as the ube brazo (the first ube dessert she sold in Bellefleur), ube coconut macaroons, ube velvet cupcakes, and ube leche flan. Bea's¬†latest addition to Bellefleur's menu is the Ube Misu: a combination of ube¬†and tiramisu.
Bellefleur's Ube Misu (P800) is their take on tiramisu, a classic Italian coffee dessert. This ube-fied version is made with four alternating layers of ube and milk-soaked ladyfingers, ube mascarpone cream, with a crunchy white chocolate center.¬†
What really prompted Bea to make a different type of tiramisu started with Bellefleur's other tiramisu flavor, the Milk Tea Misu. According to Bea, "I had actually been thinking of making a tiramisu-like cake for a few months, and I actually started work on a Milk Tea Misu because of the sudden popularity of milk tea." She adds, "And there was just such a big demand for an ube version, so I decided to make one as well."
If you're a milk tea fan, too, you should give the Milk Tea Misu¬†(P800) a try! This tiramisu cake is made with four alternating layers of milk tea-soaked ladyfingers, milk tea-infused mascarpone cream feeling, a brown sugar jelly center, dusted with milk tea powder on top. Bellefleur's homemade milk tea is made with brewing Assam black tea leaves.
