Ube Cream Stuffed French Toast


If you missed Keith Lee's review on the Ube Cream Stuffed French Toast, then let me spill the tea! Keith Lee who is a famous Tik Tok food reviewer visited The Pepper Club Restaurant in Las Vegas and tried their Ube Cream Stiffed French Toast. Keith rated this dish a 9.7 out of 10. The Pepper Club is known for their brunch menu items and the Ube Cream Stuffed French Toast is one of the best selling dishes. Of course, when I saw Keith's review I had to recreate it at home because I no plans to travel to Vegas any time soon!


If you aren't familiar with ube, it is a root vegetable with a slightly nutty, vanilla taste and is popularly used in desserts in Filipino cuisine, often boiled and then mashed with condensed milk. I was unable to find it in my local grocery store, but I did find the ube flavoring on Amazon. I used the ube flavoring in my cream and to make homemade ube syrup. I truly enjoyed this dish! It was fun to make and absolutely delicious. The full recipe is listed below as well as the link to get the ube flavoring from Amazon if you want to try this recipe.
