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: vanilla essence
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.

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.
The cake has a distinct mango flavour and proper sweetness. It feels delicious to bite into the extra sweetness of the mango bits which is added into it.
Recently, I was just getting nostalgic about my school days at pune. I was around 7 years around that time. There was this tiny cute bakery on my way back from school with full of yummy colourful goodies. Everyday as I walked back home holding my moms fingers, I use to be tempted and craved for each of those yums. This particular pink colour muffins covered with sweetened coconut fascinated me a lot. On some rare occasions, Mom used to buy the goodies. We ate with relish and enjoyed it to the core though if it was today , I…
What if you want to bake a cake in a hurry?You dont have eggs at home and cant run to the grocery store now. Are you calorie conscious and dont want to eat a cake because of the butter in it.
