  • 8 eggs whites
  • ½ tsp. cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • ½ tsp. almond essence
  • ½ tsp. coconut essence
  • Mango Sauce
  • 1 large peeled pitted, and chopped mango, We used Julie Mango
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp. lime juice


  • Beat the sugar and egg yolks together until very light in colour. Note: Every now and then you would have to use a spatula to lift the sugar form the sides and bottom as you beat. Of course you have to stop the mixer first.
  • Sift the flour and set aside.
  • Mix the almond essence and coconut essence with the lemon juice.
  • Mix egg whites, cream of tartar and salt together. Beat until very stiff.
  • Add the flour a little at a time while you beat the egg yolks.
  • Alternate the flour with the lemon juice until all is used up. Fold in the egg whites.
  • Pour the batter into a greased pan or tube pan. Bake in a moderate oven for 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave to cool.
  • For Mango Sauce
  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
