I decided to bake a mango cake. I used a simple vanilla cake recipe and adjusted the ingredients to include the mango puree. I used fresh indian mango(banganapalli) variety . I did not bother to try with the whole wheat flour this time and went ahead with the refined flour. The cake turned out to be very soft and spongy.
Ingredient: baking powder
The recipe uses whole wheat flour and no refined flour. I have used unrefined sugar too. It has a mild sweetness and is very apt for breakfast or mid morning snack. The recipe is a keeper.
The muffin recipe is super easy to bake. Its done within 30 minutes. This is definitely a must try recipe , eggless too.
It looks so appealing with the jam on the top and kids will surely enjoy them. So that day I decided to make the normal way without any healthy ingredients. I used all purpose flour and granulated white sugar. I used only half a cup of sugar and it was okay for us. There is sweetness of the jam too.
I have seen in a couple of blogs featuring them and they looked quite tempting. I wouldn’t call this cake completely healthy. I have used an egg and the regular granulated sugar and the usual ingredients. Except that I have added more of whole wheat flour and a little of plain flour. But for a more whiter and a spongier texture, you can consider using plain flour completely.
I have used some jowar/sorghum flour of which I had some in the freezer. I wanted to use something healthy and thinking of whole wheat flour or oats, I finally decided to make with millet. You can try using any kind of millet flour. I have not tried but am sure it would work as long as there is chocolate in it. You can even use whole wheat flour instead of maida. The texture would be a bit more chewy in that case. And please feel free to use any kind of sugar you have. I have used orange marmalade here . I have always loved the combination of orange and chocolate.
I had made this brownies a couple of months ago for my kids snacktime. They love anything with chocolate and I promptly sneaked in some sweet potatoes making the brownies healthier. Walnuts give a nice crunch and chocolate just enhance the taste. They had a nice texture and were really delicious. Kids enjoyed and sweet potatoes imparts the necessary sweetness , So I have added very little sugar to it in the end.
I thought the mango flavour in the icecream was so intense that the cake would taste great.The cake tasted good and to my surprise kids loved it too. I love to have a small slice with my coffee in the evening.
This brownies are very easy and quick to make. Its basically adding a few wet ingredients to a readymade brownie mix. See the recipe to know more about it.
