Eggless Mango Chocolate Cake,Eid Delicacy 2


I don't dislike eggs ,but its good to experiment without them every once in a while to create a lighter calorie baked goodies.Also,for those with egg allergies(like my mom ) and on restricted diets this(and the previous) eggless bake wouldn't be a let down.


Talk about the star ingredient in the cake - the mangoes.The mango puree not just replaces the eggs but also adds to the sweetness of the cake.The fresh mango slices in every bite would make the cake a true mango indulgence.And of course the chocolaty touch with 100% cocoa powder cannot be substituted with any other ingredient.


Recipe Eggless Mango Chocolate Cake
Serves 6
Ingredients
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup 100% cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder(alum free)
1/3 cup agave nectar or 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup mango puree unsweetened
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup reduced fat milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 ripe mangoes,sliced lengthwise


Method
Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust oven rack to middle .Lightly grease and line a 8x8 inch round pan with parchment paper.Arrange in the pan,the fresh mango sliced in a flower pattern.
Sift all the dry ingredients in large mixing bowl,also mix in the chocolate chips.In another mixing bowl whisk together oil,milk,mango puree,vanilla and sugar.

Now combine wet and dry mixtures. Pour in the prepared cake pan and set in the oven for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool cake for 30 minutes and flip on to a plate.Peel off the parchment,slice and serve.Can be refrigerated for a week.



Hard to believe the cherished month of Ramadan is ending soon.Eid marks the celebration of recharged faith.Sweet delicacies of all kinds adorn the eid feasts,the cake would be such a pleasant addition.


Farewell to Ramadan and mangoes......

Eid Mubarak !

dear Yasmeen, i was going through my pantry today and found a huge can of unopened mango pulp and was wondering what to do with it and how i can use it. basically i was searching for something i havent tried before. but baking a cake and replacing eggs with the pulp never came to my mind. you're a genius! this cake looks wonderful, love the design. i might try it with a vanilla cake version. Eid Mubarak to you

I was doing some vegan baking for a while and honestly, it tastes so much lighter and fluffier than non-vegan baking! Crazy. I love the sound of mangoes and chocolate together!

The good thing about your information is that it is explicit enough for students to grasp. Thanks for your efforts in spreading academic knowledge.

Eid mubarak Yasmeen,I have made this cake so many times and everyone seems to love it. I add banana ,nuts what not. Only suggestion is I have to add baking SODA not baking powder for the cake to rise. You may want to correct the same.
