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.
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.
I had it along with my afternoon coffee and really enjoyed it. I had posted regarding this in my instagram. Do follow me on instagram to get regular updates on what I cook each day. Its fun sharing those pictures and you will enjoy them too!
