  • 180 g grated ube frozen
  • 1 large egg
  • 50 g granulated cane sugar
  • 125 ml coconut milk sub with whole milk or any non-dairy alternative
  • 5 ml vanilla extract
  • tiny pinch of sea salt
  • 130 g mochiko flour or glutinous rice flour


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C.
  • Line an 8" by 8" baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the grated ube, egg, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and sea salt until smooth.
  • Add in the mochiko (or glutinous rice flour) and whisk until incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Give it a few taps to release any trapped bubbles.
  • Bake at 350°F/177°C for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (To prevent excessive browning, cover with aluminum foil about 10 minutes into the bake).
  • Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.
  • Slice into 16 pieces and serve.
