Summer season is the time when mangoes of various types are out in full swing. In my childhood days in our backyard we had a large mango tree and we used to wait for summer to pick the first ripe mangoes of the season. I still remember how I used to enjoy the green ones with salt and red chilli powder. However, today I'm going to present a very easy and delicious cake. This was such a Mangolicious delight !!!! Hope all of you like it and do let me know your opinion through valuable comments. Bye:-)
Serves: 6, Preparation time: 15 and Baking: 30-40 minutes
2 cups All purpose flour
3/4 cup Unsalted butter
11/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 cup Mango puree
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Lemon juice
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Mango puree
3 tbsp Sugar
1 cup heavy Whipping Cream
Few slice of Mangoes
Grease and dust a 6 inch pan with all purpose flour and preheat oven to 350 degree F. Sieve the baking powder, flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Beat the butter and sugar in a separate bowl, until light and fluffy. Now beat in the eggs one at a time. Whipping a lot after each
addition, mix until peaks form. Now add the flour mixture in a little quantity to the butter mixture beating continuously as you combine the two. Mix in the eggs and whisk in the same direction.
Gently add vanilla extract, lemon juice and mango puree and blend everything together. Now pour this batter into the pre-heated pan and bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degree F or till a toothpick or skewer comes out clean. After taking out from the pan let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then run a knife around the edge of the cake to loosen it from the sides of the baking pan. Now cool it completely on the wire rack.
For refreshing mango topping:
In a blender/food processor on medium speed beat whipping cream for 5 minutes or until peaks form. Now add sugar to the cream. Now add mango puree in the processor and blend it again on high speed for 5 minutes or until it is smooth. Pour this on a glass bowl and refrigerate it. When you want to serve the cake take out this and spread evenly on the top. Decorate it with mango slices. And since I'm a chocoholic I have just outlined it by melted chocolate.
Have a nice weekend to all you !!!
