Adding ube (purple yam) is a great way to flavor puto (Filipino muffin). I have made different recipes for puto using cake flour, self-raising flour and rice flour. This time I thought of making it easier by using pancake mix. It makes the puto soft and fluffy. But the key is to get a good brand of pancake or waffle mix. I suggest to use the brand Bisquick baking mix.
I acquired this recipe from my Bisquick Muffins recipe and added ube jam and ube extract to give it a nice ube flavor. You can make the Ube Jam from scratch if you like or purchase a ready madeube jam in a bottle.
For any left over Ube Jam or halaya, here's a few of my recipes you can try.
