Ube Decadence Recipe

This is a great version of the original creamy dessert.

Ube lovers will love this maja blanca-like dessert that marries the milky, gelatin base with creamy ube halaya

What is Ube Decadence

It is actually the brainchild of Corazon Guinto and is described as a gelatin-like dessert in the shape of an oval made with a milky pudding base and topped with ube cake crumbs. Just like a leche flan, it too is made in a llanera as well, hence the familiar shape.

The taste of this simple but delicious dessert is not too cloyingly sweet but milky, soft, and definitely addictive, especially if you're a fan of ube and maja blanca. The texture is similar to the delicate panna cotta of Italy in that it is jiggly soft but not too soft that it will fall apart if you vigorously shake the dessert. This even has some ube jam or ube halaya tucked into the center of the dessert so you get a burst of ube when you dig in!
