Overall, I thought the cake lacked depth of flavor. I followed the recipe as written, processing the ube by scrubbing and boiling it before peeling and cubing it to put in my food mill. I certainly didn't get the deep purple color shown in the picture even with the food coloring. I didn't get the flavor that is typical of the ube cakes I've tasted at parties. However, I don't know if those cakes were enhanced with additional, perhaps artificial flavorings since none of them were homemade. Next time, I'll try roasting the ube before mashing it to see if that will enhance the flavor. The texture, however, was fine.
