Very recently a Mango feast was going on with very very inviting posts by my fellow bloggers. A wish inside grew since then to post a recipe of mango. I thoroughly enjoyed all the innovations they brought in their dishes using mangoes, and loved the traditional recipes of Mango chutney or pickles too. Back home Mango is the king of all fruits and all of us do treat and eat it royally.
The other day mom was saying the mango tree at my parent's place have boar lot of mangoes this season. She was sad naturally because we are not visiting India this summer. This post may be is to show her and off course console her saying Maa we get it here and eat it too. Though we do not get that variety or taste as we used to back home, I never tell it to her. It all depends upon how we adapt to a place, and appreciate its advantages. We get best quality watermelons here which is not so back home.
I prepared this Eggless Mango Cake for my visiting childhood friends, perhaps to make our memory sweeter. They liked it, hope others too will. Let us proceed with the recipe which has a good amount of pureed mango in it. The original recipe I found in Google and modified a bit according to the ingredients available in my pantry.
All Purpose Flour : 11/2 cup
Cornflour : 1 tbsp
Fresh Pureed Mango : 1/3 cup
Cubed Fresh Mango : 1/2 cup
Whipping Cream : 100 ml
Baking Powder : 1 tbsp
Baking Soda : 1 tsp
Vinegar : 1 tbsp
Yogurt : 1/2 cup
Sugar : 1/2 cup
Oil : 1/2 cup
Mango Essence : 1 tsp[optional]
[The measuring cup should be the same]
Preheat the oven to 180*C.
Sieve together the all purpose flour, cornflour and baking powder.
In another bowl beat together sugar and oil very well till all the sugar dissolves.
Add beaten yogurt to it and whisk well.
Add the flour mix little by little and fold in well.
Now add the pureed mango and the mango essence and mix together everything very well.
In a small cup add together the vinegar and baking soda and add to the batter.
Pour the batter in a greased cake tin and bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 180*C.
Once cold, I topped it with whipped cream adding little sugar to it and cubed mangoes.
