Mango Upside Down Cake

Finally I am back with a recipe post after a long time. I never expected that I will post a recipe in my blog this soon. But I am happy that I am back to form very soon. I will try updating blog regularly, but if I didn't keep up my words please pardon me.

My life is going so good, I am enjoying each moment upto the peek. The only thing which makes me feel is "TIME", Life is running in a very busy shedule, since I have joined my work after the wedding leave. Its really hard to find some time for myself.  I don't know where the days are running, still can’t believe that today is the 13th day of our happily married life. Overall it is new experience..

If you are wondering that this is the first recipe which I made in my very own house. Then you are wrong because this is not the one.  Honestly  I didn't take photos of the first meal which I made:(  I have told you the reason, because my kitchen is not set properly, I didn't get a chance to take picture. But  I will post the grant unveling of my very own kitchen pictures. If you are eager to know what I cooked first. I am telling you, it is nothing special, just plain old sambar, my favorite potato roast, mango kotsu, Ginger Pickle and papad. Just plain simple meals. I hope that this clear many of viewers questions!!

Now talking about this cake, I am having a craze towards upside down fruit cakes. I am loving it a lot and very excited to see the real fruity pieces dispersed all over the top of the cake along with some caramelized sugar glaze. This cake gives you a complete mango flavour  since the batter has mango as well which is perfect for this season.

I hope you will love this a lot and tell me if you like it..

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@SeenaI am not sure about a gas oven. because i have never used that. try setting low temparature so that the cake wont get burned. Try to use aluminium or glass dish.
