Mango is my favourite! Pushpa of PuSiVa'S CuLiNarY StUdiO has gorgeous baking recipes which are very simple yet give out great results!! She has a good collection of cooking books and her own recipes which have been neatly filed away for reference! This dish was baked as a birthday cake for her sister Chikie, by her. The ingredients were few and the photo awesome which made me immediately try it out. Original recipe called for mango puree-I used mango pulp instead. I skipped lemon juice and mango essence.
1 cup maida / all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick(100 gms) butter at room temperature
3/4th cup mango puree
1 tsp vanilla essence (mango essence ideally)
1/2 cup milk
Sieve together- flour, b.soda, b.pwdr, salt and keep aside.
In a big bowl, mix butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg keep mixing. Add the essence.
Add mango puree and mix for a while. Add the flour mixture spoon by spoon and milk in turns ending with the flour mixture. Keep mixing till homogenous. Grease the baking pan generously with butter and flour. Pour the mixture in the greased tin / in a tin lined with parchment paper.
Preheat oven at 175° C for 30-35 minutes...or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Take it out of the oven, let it cool for ten minutes, transfer on to a wire rack and let it cool completely.
Gorge on this delicious Mango cake shamelessly! Its worth it!
I had to pre-heat my oven at 170° C for ten minutes, reduce the temp. to 160° C , baking time 35 minutes .
THANK YOU PUSHPA FOR POSTING SUCH A SUPER-D-DUPER MOIST AND FLUFFY MANGO CAKE!
