Purple Yam Buttermilk Pancakes
We Filipinos are crazy about Ube [oo-beh] or purple yam! We have it on almost every dessert, other cuisines will serve yam as a side dish with a savoury dish but Filipinos love Ube sweet. We have it on cakes, ice creams, candies and even bread. The possibilities are endless…haha!
Here’s a quick pancake recipe that I hope you will like. It’s basically a simple buttermilk pancake with ube essence. Cooking panckes should be easy and not complicated.
I bought my Ube essence bottle from a Filipino supermarket in Earls Court in London. I haven’t seen them being sold anywhere else but check Chinatown too just in case they have it. All the other ingredients are pretty easy to find.
