Easy Ube Mamon Recipe
4 tsp Ube flavoring
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
8 large eggs, egg yolks and egg whites separated
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
6 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
HOW TO COOK:
First, preheat your oven to 350 F or 175 C.
In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder then set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks on medium speed until lighter in color and slightly thicker.
Add 1/2 cup of the sugar and stir until incorporated then add the milk, oil, and ube flavoring. Stir until well- combined.
Add the flour mixture in two additions and stir until the batter is smooth.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or hand mixer, whisk the egg whites until frothy.
Add the cream of tartar and continue whisking until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar while beating until the egg whites form firm, shiny peaks.
Fold about a third of the meringue into the yolk mixture to thin down the consistency of the yolk batter. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the remaining meringue 1/3 at a time.
Once the batter is uniform in color, spoon into large muffin molds until 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool then serve. Enjoy!
