Mango cake


YIPEE!! Mangoes are finally in season!! yipee!!! I love mangoes, last year wasn't a very good mango season in Hawaii, but this year, there are tons and tons of mangoes!! With the mangoes we bought, I made a special cake for my dad for father's day. I used the cake from the Lychee mousse cake, and filled it with whipped cream and mango filling. I also topped it off with more mangoes. I will definitely make this again, it's delicious and doesn't take too long to make! Here's the recipe:

Mango cake
cake adapted from Rabbit sims

For the chiffon cake:
sugar 10g
egg yolks 2
cakeflour 42g, sifted
oil 35g
milk 35g
sugar 30g
egg whites 2


1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Using a hand whisk, beat 10 g of sugar and egg yolks together until it’s pale yellow and texture is light.
3. Add milk and oil into the egg yolk mixture until it's corporated. Gently fold in cake flour until all the flour is incorporated.
4. Beat egg whites and 30 g of sugar until stiff peak forms. Fold the egg whites into the cake batter.
6. Pour batter into a 7 inch cake tin and bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Mango filling and frosting

1 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 mangoes


1. Mix the cream, sugar and vanilla together. Whip the cream with a mixer until it reaches soft peak stage.
2. Cut one mango in small cubes for the filling. For the second mango, cut it anyway you like to decorate the top of the cake.

Assembly:
1. After the cake has cooled, cut the cake in half. Spread some of the cream on the cake. Put the small mango cubes on top of the cream. Spread some more cream on top of the mangoes. Lay the cake on top and frost the entire cake with the remaining whipped cream.

This looks great and the fact that you said it's simple is a big plus. I remember as a kid in Hawaii during Mango season. We wold eat them in the car with our hands out the window dripping juice down the side of the car. Hahaha

Oh my, that is absolutely beautiful and sounds SO good! It certainly doesn't look "simple" but that is definitely a bonus. Thanks!

HI JJ,
that's the best part about this cake. It's so delicious, but really didn't take that long to make. You can also substitute any other type of fruits you want.
