Ube Decadence

Ube Decadence is a Filipino dessert with ube flavour and is made with all purpose cream, evaporated milk, sugar, gelatin powder and ube halaya. You can experience a pure and satisfying ube flavor made with our very own Filipino delicacy, the ube halaya. With its easy preparation, the ube decadence can be eaten as a dessert or a snack or can be served during large celebrations like birthdays and holidays.


Jelly desserts are one of my favorite type of palate cleansers after a fatty meal. Aside from Max’s roasted chicken and caramel bars, another famous treat from this restaurant is their ube decadence. This is where I first tasted this sweet dessert. I made a bunch of ube halaya for my kumare’s upcoming birthday. The ube decadence is the first dessert which came into my mind after I learned that I had some extra ube halaya.

Ube decadence is an ube-rified version of panna cotta. The panna cotta is a famous dessert worldwide made with cream, sugar and gelatin. From there, you will have an idea how satisfying this treat be when added with some ube goodness. The creamy and milky panna cotta is sandwiched with a layer of grated ube halaya which is a classic Filipino favorite. Just as the land meets the sea, ube decadence is where ube meets the jelly. The grated ube topping is the real deal for me. Having a real ube halaya on top of the panna cotta is better than any jelly flavoured with artificial ube flavor. 

If you have read some of my previous blogs, you’ll know about my niece who is a super ube fan. I let her helped me in making some ube decadence for our family.  With her extreme love for ube, she is not satisfied with the grated ube toppings and even added ube halaya bits on the panna cotta! If you’re an extreme ube lover like my niece, ube decadence is a must-try recipe for you! Yum!


If you’re familiar with panna cotta or creamy gelatin, all we needed to do is to upgrade that sweet dessert into an ube-tastic treat. Instead of serving a plain panna cotta, an ube decadence has a grated layer of your favorite ube halaya. If you want to make your own ube halaya at home, click on this link to find out how:

I recommend to chill your ube halaya until it hardens so it will be easier to grate. A soft one would just stick to your grater. Fill the bottom of your llanera with grated ube. For the panna cotta, it is similar to making a simple gelatin. Make a mixture of the milk, cream, gelatin and sugar and heat it. Adjust the sugar level based on how sweet you like the panna cotta to be. When it has cooled a bit, pour them into your llaneras with grated gelatin. When firm, top with more grated ube halaya. Your ube decadence is done! Chill them for a better mouthfeel. Enjoy!

Ube decadence in llaneras are best for personal consumption. If you want to sell these, you can make them into small plastic cups. The kids will surely be running to your area to taste this sweet ube jelly dessert!
