This Ube-Purple Yam Pound Cake with Ube Frosting is a regular Filipino dessert favorite in our home. This is not a light cake. It is a heavy pound cake which is rich, thick and dense in texture. The difference with this recipe is that I used a swirly Bundt cake pan, with numerous crevices and corners which made the cake even more beautiful. I frosted the cake with ube frosting between the nooks and crannies. Then at the end, sprinkled a combination of crumbled ube cake and homemade polvoron (Filipino powdered candy). A recipe for polvoron
