Mango Upside Down Cake

This cake was made some time ago from home grown mango given by a friend.  No idea about the specie of the mango but the skin was green in colour with very meaty flesh.  Yummy cake for any time of the day!

 






 Recipe for Mango Upside Down Cake  (adapted from BBC Goodfood magazine with slight modifications)

    Ingredients
    • 2 large mangoes                                                                       
    • 175 gm butter
    • 120 gm sugar (reduced from 175 gm)
    • 3 eggs
    • 225 gm plain flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 75 ml milk
    • Pinch of salt
    • 2  Tbsp lemon juice to toss onto the mangoes
    • 3  Tbsp mango bits
    Caramel
    • 40 gm butter, 50 gm brown sugar, 1 Tbsp water
    Method
    1. Lightly grease  a solid based 22 cm round cake tin. ( I used a loaf pan.)
    2. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt, set aside.
    3. Put the brown sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat to allow the sugar to dissolve.  Bring to the boil and continue to cook without stirring until the sugar has turned a deep caramel colour.  Add the butter and swirl the pan to incorporate evenly.  Pour immediately into the prepared pan, covering the base with an even layer of caramel.  Leave to cool.
    4. Peel the mangoes, cut off the cheeks and slice the flesh into 1/4 inch thick slices.  Arrange the mango over the hard caramel in the pan.
    5. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.  Gradually add the beaten eggs, mixing well between each addition.  Fold the sifted flour into the cake mixture, mix well.  Add the milk and mix until smooth.
    6. Toss in the mango bits and mix well.
    7. Carefully spoon the cake mixture over the mango slices and level.
    8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 45 to 50 mins. or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.  Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 5 mins. before turning out into a serving plate.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
