Ube Bread (Purple Yam Bread) with Cinnamon Streussel

Joey (my son): Mom make some Zucchini bread.

Me: I don’t think I ever made one yet.

Joey: Oh yeah, you haven’t but Nicci’s mom made some and it was good!

Me: Let me get the recipe and I’ll make it sometime.

Joey: You could make your own version mom. I think it’s like banana bread; just replace the bananas with Zucchini

That’s when an idea popped in my head. Since I didn’t have any zucchini in stock but had a bag of frozen grated ube (purple yam), then why not make ube bread instead.

So here friends, I’m excited to share with you my first attempt to make Ube Bread…  it’s not as purple as other ube breads (maybe you could add more ube to make it look ube-usque) but this bread disappeared fast from my kitchen…
