Mango Cake



When I saw Elin's Dimply Mango Cake post in her blog, I told myself that I must try it  as mango is also one of my favourite fruits.  However, I tweaked it a bit, reduced the sugar, butter and the end result is also a yummy cake, especially  the delicious mango flavour.  It's quite a unique combination, have not seen this cake being sold commercially.  Hats off to Elin and thanks for sharing!



arranging the mango slices on the cake takes a bit of effort ......








the yellow bits are  the mashed  mango which certainly enhance the flavour of the cake

When I was making the mango cake, I was very surprised to find this  ..........



an egg with two yolks ...... twins!  I didn't add this to the butter and sugar mixture, made an omelette instead.

  13. I will most likely cut down the sugar in almost all recipes as well. Just can not take it if it's too sweet. This looks perfectly done. Great job!

    Ya, I'm going to get some luck. Cake is delicious.

    The 4 oz sugar in the recipe is just nice, think no need to reduce anymore. Still needs more practice to cut the mango slices.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
