Thanks to my friend for sharing her Okoy Recipe, I just made some adjustments to suit my preference 🙂
Purple Yam Cupcakes.
This recipe used ube powder instead of fresh ube.
Tsokolate = chocolate ; Tablea = tablets
You know, I am not an expert when it comes to the specifics of tablea, so I leave the answers to the experts 🙂
What is Philippine tablea?
The Philippine tablea is defined as roasted, ground and molded nibs of fermented pure (100%) cacao beans without added ingredients and additives. It is also a cocoa mass and cocoa liquor made from cacao beans that are fermented, dried, roasted, ground then molded into blocks, balls, discs, or tablets.
It is traditionally used in the Philippines to make a hot chocolate beverage using a wooden mixing implement or stirrer. The Cacao Industry Development Association of Mindanao estimated that around 2,000 tons of cacao beans is processed to tablea. – Industry.Gov.Ph
Oh, by the way, this is an egg-free version 🙂
What sets this apart from the other chocolates?
