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!

    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.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
