Eat My Ube Cupcake

It is that time again folks, a time to over indulge in sweets while giving back to your community. It is time for Eat My Blog, a charity bake sale hosted by fellow Angelino bloggers Cathy Dahn of Gastronomy Blog and Diana Hossfeld of Diana Takes a Bite. All proceeds from the bake sale go to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The inaugural Eat My Blog bake sale was held last winter and was a huge success. Eat My Blog gathers food bloggers, restaurant owners, chefs, bakers and the like to contribute sweet goodness to raise money to help fight hunger. Last year I contributed Let Me Eat Cake oatmeal sandwich cookies. They were a hit and I had a blast being part of this amazing event.

For this year’s second annual Eat My Blog charity bake sale I will be donating ube cupcakes with a coconut butter cream frosting from The Manila Machine (LA’s first and only Filipino food truck- my food truck!). We are excited to contribute and hope that you all come down and share in the fun. It is going to be a sweet time for a good cause. Come enjoy a plethora of confections and meet some bloggers. I will be working 10am-1pm so make sure to say hi!

Now you can drool over this preview of the cupcakes I will be bringing…


You can find the Manila Machine ube cupcake recipeย here, but why bake them visit us on the truck and you can enjoy theses plus many many more delicious Filipino eats!

    Can the Manila Machine, uh, truck on down to the other West Coast, ie West Africa?

    Am having a crave attack. For anything ube.

    In particular, ube riceflour cakes with fresh coconut shredding inside and a cheddar strip on top.

    Has anyone tried ube pancakes with sliced salted egg in the middle?

    Well, I’ll just make black millet pancakes with sea salt crystals and hibiscus-infused honey and pretend it’s what I really want.
