Mango Cardamom cake – Mango recipes

Though nowadays I see mangoes stocked up in the supermarket all the year round, I like to buy them only during the proper season. We do buy plenty of mangoes during these three months every year and I go crazy eating them as a whole and I am very tempted to try different recipes with them too. I am not too fond of the store bought mango puree. I prefer adding fresh fruits. Baking a cake using mangoes always prioritizes my list as everyone at home love it. You can check out the mango buttermilk pound cake which I made couple of years ago and I bake it almost every year. This time I decided to go for a different recipe with healthy ingredients.

Mango cake    I found the recipe while browsing the net and decided to go ahead with this one making some changes to the original recipe. This one is eggless and I used flax seeds and buttermilk for the softness. I have used whole wheat flour , but you can use all purpose flour or refined wheat flour. It will be less dense that way. But my family have got used to the denser texture of my cakes as I prefer baking it the healthy way. 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.

  4. Pour the batter in the prepared cake pan. Bake at 180c for 45 minutes till the top has browned. Insert a knife or skewer in the center to check if the cake is done. Allow it to cool for 15 minutes. Invert on a plate and cut into slices. Serve immediately or store in a airtight box.
Recipe Notes

For buttermilk, add 2tbsp vinegar in 3/4th cup of milk. Let it rest for 5 minutes. You can see that it curdles a bit.
