FrankieLucy Bakeshop

Thank the mighty ube for the mauve morsels at FrankieLucy’s Bakeshop.

You’ll be tickled pink – or at least, purple – at this endearing Silver Lake bakery.

Specialising in delicious desserts from the Philippines, it’s the result of a mouthwatering collaboration between Found Coffee and Crème Caramel, and first opened on Sunset Boulevard back in December 2016.

FrankieLucy’s not-so-secret ingredient is Dioscorea alata – better known as the ube or purple yam, after its fantastic colour. The vividly-coloured tuber has a sweet, gently-nuttly flavor that makes it perfect for all kinds of Instagram-friendly desserts. Just look at the action!

The ingredient makes its way into all kinds of delectable snacks: an upside-down ube pie, pavlovas, creme caramels, ice cream popsicles and icy horchatas.

New innovations make their way onto the menu, from time to time – last Christmas, their spectacular, electric purple Yule log had foodies’ hearts aflutter internet-wide.
