Mango Cake

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

This is not a common recipe for mango, but an interesting one.  I say interesting, because I have never tasted a mango cake before – and never really thought of making one.  You see, like many people I am accustomed to eating the mango fruit as is; not as an ingredient in a recipe.

Become Adventurous, Try Making a Mango Cake

Some people think any mango recipe is a waste of the mango fruit.  They would not drink a mango juice, make a sorbet with mango, or even bake a cake with mango as one of the ingredients.  However, I thought that if there is so much mango around, why not include it in some recipes.  So I invite you readers to be adventurous in cooking as well.

 Mango Cake Recipe

When I was given this recipe by my sister, I had to try it.  Of course, I made some slight changes in the recipe. This mango cake recipe is very easy.  I believe the best mango for this recipe is Julie Mango and  the mango should not be too ripe.  If it is too ripe, the cake could be overpowered by the mango flavor and not everyone would delight in that taste. Unfortunately, I could only get Governor Mango, a huge mango with a distinctly sweet taste.  The mango is pureed before it is added to the recipe.  Here is mango cake…
