Eggless Mango Cake

As fruit bearing season of mango is nearing an end my mother sent me a last batch of organic mangoes that were plucked from the trees grown in her backyard.

After devouring sweet mangoes to our hearts’ content, I decided to bake a cake with remaining mangoes.

I have also baked a batch of cupcakes for my son as he likes to have them frosted with mango cream.

Method:

Mixing dry ingredients:

  • Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & cardamom and keep it aside.

Preparing batter:

  • Mix caster sugar with mango puree using whisker until dissolved.
  • Add neutral oil & flour and fold them in.
  • This cake batter can be used for making cup cakes also.

Baking:

First  I have baked six cupcakes followed by another cake with rest of the batter as shown below:

  • Preheat the oven at 180 deg C

Cupcakes:

  • Spoon the batter into muffin liners lined up in a muffin tray.
  • I do not want to smooth down the top as my son likes to have thick crusts on top.
  • Bake them at 180 deg C for 25 min.

   Cake:

  • Grease a 5″ cake dish and pour remaining batter into it.
  • Bake at 180 deg C for 40 min..

Frosting:

  • Cream together butter & sugar until frothy (about 1 min) using electric beater.
  • Add mango puree & vanilla extract and whisk together for a minute.
  • Frost the cupcakes when they have cooled down.
