  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons oil ( for greasing, adjust)
  • slivered pistachios/pecans/almonds

Note : Before starting the following preparation, preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 160 degrees C. Also grease the baking pan/pans with oil.




Method :

  1. In a mixer, puree the mango pulp, sugar and milk to a smooth consistency.
  2. In a wide vessel/bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda using a fork or wire whisk.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan and allow it to cool a bit.
  4. Add the pureed mango-sugar mixture and butter to the flour mixture and whisk well using a ballon whisk so that there are no lumps.
    Note : The consistency of the batter is semi- thick. When you drop the batter, it should flow smoothly and will form ribbons.
  5. Transfer the batter to the greased baking tins.
    Chef tip: Fill only upto 1/2 of the cake tin/vessel.
  6. You can sprinkle pistachios or dry fruits of your choice ( optional) and bake the cake in the middle rack of the oven at 160 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
    Chef tip : After 10 minutes , check if the top layer is browning. If so, cover with a foil and continue baking.
  7. After 20 minutes, check whether the cake is fully cooked by inserting a toothpick in the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, your cake is done. Else, continue baking and check every 5 minutes.
  8. Once done, remove the cake pan from the oven and allow it to cool for 5-7 minutes in the pan itself.
  9. Then slowly run a blunt knife on the sides of the pan.
  10. Invert the pan on a cooling rack and dismantle the cake from the pan.
  11. Cool for another 10 minutes.
  12. During this time you can garnish the cake with pistachios/ cut fruits/ whipped cream etc.,
