The best ube treats in Toronto range from soothing, plum-coloured lattes to sugar-laced desserts infused with the delicate flavour and regal colour of the popular purple yam.
A staple crop in the Philippines that’s now grown worldwide, ube is a species of yam often used for sweets. To make this starchy root into a dessert, bakers steam or boil ube and mash it until smooth. Naturally subtle, ube is generally enhanced with sugar, coconut and condensed milk, and natural flavourings. Used in a multitude of dishes, such as halo-halo, ensaymadas, halaya and more, this arrestingly vivid ingredient is a natural for eye-catching, delicious indulgences.
