Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cook time: 30 minutes

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (8oz) refrigerated croissant dough sheet (uncut sheet is better)
  • 1 pouch Fila Manila Ube Purple Yam Spread (or 2 pouches for extra Ube-ness) 
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Fila Manila Ube Purple Yam Spread

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line 8x4-inch loaf pan with cooking parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, flour and Ube with fork or use fingers until the mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Unroll one dough sheet on work surface. Press or roll into 15x9-inch rectangle. Spread Fila Manila Ube evenly over dough sheet to within 1/4 inch of edges.
  4. Press remaining dough sheet into 15x9-inch rectangle. Place on top of Ube-topped dough sheet, stretching slightly to fit. Roll dough up starting at one long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on cutting board.
  5. Using sharp knife, slice dough lengthwise to within 1/2 inch from bottom of dough. Keeping cut sides up, bring ends together, braid dough together. Place in loaf pan. Sprinkle with crumb mixture.
  6. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until deep golden brown and dough is baked through. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool 1 hour. Carefully cut loaf using serrated knife.
