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.
