1/4 cup + 2 tablespoon milk    

1/2 cup  boiled, mashed and strained ube or ube jam

1/4 teaspoon              violet food color

1/3 – 1/2 cup              prepared homemade jam or store bought ube jam

 

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 375°F/191°C. Grease and line with wax paper a jelly roll pan. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a bowl. Set aside. Mix together vanilla, milk and ube until smooth. Add egg yolks and corn oil. Stir until well-blended. Add this mixture to the sifted ingredients. Mix until smooth.

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks stage, then gradually beat continuously until stiff but not dry. Fold in the ube mixture. Add food color if desired. Pour into prepared pans. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Loosen the sides of the cake.  Invert cake on sugar dusted brown paper and roll tightly while hot.  Cool completely. 

Prepare Ube Frosting:  Cream the butter until soft and fluffy. Add sugar alternately with milk and beat continuously until smooth. Tint mixture with violet food color and beat in some ube filling for a more flavorful frosting. 

To Assemble Pianono: Unroll cooled cake.  Spread ube frosting onto the cake and roll again.

This can be made into layer cakes. Use nine-inch pans instead of jelly roll pan.
