Ingredients
  

FOR THE CAKE:

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 80 ml coconut/canola oil
  • 100 ml coconut milk/regular milk/evaporated
  • 10 tablespoons cake flour
  • total of 2 teaspoons Ube flavor extract separated

MERINGUE:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 11 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • powdered sugar to spread generously on the cooked cake
  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

FOR THE CAKE ROLL:

  • Pre heat oven at 350 F and put the wire rack at the middle of the oven.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of ube flavor extract to the measuring glass (see video) and add the milk for a total liquid volume of 100 ml.
  • Put egg yolks in a small bowl.
  • Add in the sugar and mix. Add the cake flour. Mix
  • Add the oil and milk / ube extract  mixture and mix.
  • Mix using a wire whisk until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add the other 1 teaspoon of the ube flavor extract.
  • Set aside.

FOR THE MERINGUE:

  • Put egg whites in a stand mixer bowl and mix until frothy.
  • Add the cream of tartar and mix. Add the sugar intermittently. 3 times and mix until stiff peaks.
  • You can tell that it's ready if it forms stiff peaks, and the meringue forms a horn when you pull the whisk upward.

PREPARING THE CHIFFON CAKE:

  • When meringue is ready, scoop about a cup of meringue mixture and add it into the egg yolk mixture.
  • Use a folding method in mixing. Using a spatula, scoop mixture then pull up until all of the mixture are incorporated. Do this gently, folding too hard will result in a hard chiffon cake.
  • Add mixture into the rest of the meringue and mix again using the folding method.
  • Transfer mixture into a NON GREASE 9.5  x 13 inches lined parchment paper  and pour cake batter on top of the pattern, tap the pan in a flat surface to remove air bubbles.
  • Bake at pre heated 350 F oven for 10-15 minutes. Start checking at 15 minutes using a toothpick test method.
  • When chiffon cake is done, WORK ON ROLLING the cake. Scrape/ cut at the sides of the pan using a knife.

ROLLING THE CAKE:

  • While the cake is hot, work on rolling it. I actually rolled it 5  minutes after taking out from the oven.
  • Put the pan in a flat surface and GENEROUSLY sprinkle top of the cake with powdered sugar. This part is important, so that the cake will not stick on the cloth or parchment. Cover the cake with tea towel or parchment paper.Leave about 1 inch of the towel/parchment on one side and put a flat pan on top of the cake/towel. Flip the cake .You really need to be careful that the pan fits or the cake will not slide when you flip it. I have cake ruined and break doing this process.
  • Remove the parchment paper and very gently roll the cake with the tea towel/parchment . Roll it from the shorter (width side ) side of cake. This process will create a rolled formed muscle of the cake. Let the cake rest for about  30 minutes or an hour. SLICE 2 INCHES ON BOTH SIZE OF THE CAKE FOR UBE CRUMBS AND LET COOL.
  • Then unroll the cake.
  • Letting the cake rolled for a long time makes it soggy and flimsy.
  • Let the cake cool for an about 40 minutes. And then you can fill the cake.

FILL THE CAKE:

  • Put the cream cheese in standing mixing bowl and mix for about 1 minute. Add in the powder sugar. Start mixing in slow so that sugar will not fly everywhere .
  • Add the heavy whipping cream and mix until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate cream if not using immediately.
  • RESERVE 2 CUPS OF THE FILLING AND BAG IT FOR PIPING YOU CAN USE YOUR FAVORITE TIP.

WHEN THE CAKE IS READY TO FILL AND DECORATED:

  • Line a flat long plate with parchment paper ( Please check video) . And put the Ube cake.
  • Using a spatula, gently fill the cake Leave about 1 inch of the cake not filled.
  • Cover the whole cake with the frosting.
  • Process the extra cut cake and cover the Ube cake with the crumbled ube cake
  • Arrange the strawberry or cherry on top  and refrigerate until ready to eat. Enjoy!
