I always wanted to make a proper mango cake. I am telling you this is the perfect recipe for that. The recipe is adapted from veg recipes and it is just perfect. The cake is moist, soft and full of mango flavour.
The orginal recipe calls for complete wheat flour, i modified it and added 1 cup of wheat flour and a 1/2 cup of plain flour. but i am sure the cake will be just perfect with complete wheat flour as well. And the addition of sugar depends on your taste. Try to use a ripe really sweet mango for the best mango flavour. I had some mango essence on hand, so i used it..You can just use plain vanilla essence.
You can toss some chocolate chips, coconut or chopped nuts in this as well. A simple chocolate glaze over this will be just perfect as well. but i wanted a plain simple mango cake without the glaze.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
