Eggless Mango cake Ingredient list
Mangoes — This luscious fruit is the star ingredient of the recipe. Choose fresh, ripe, and juicy mangoes for this recipe as they will render a beautiful color and a fantastic flavor to our cake. Avoid using mangoes that are overripe and have a fibrous pulp.
Flour — The base ingredient for our cake, use fresh all-purpose flour for best results.
Baking powder/ Baking soda — These are the leavening agents that aerate the cake batter to create the fluffiest cake and lend a velvety texture to it.
Salt — The all-sweet cake needs to be balanced for sweetness, and a pinch of salt does just that. In doing so, it also lifts the flavors of the other ingredients used in the recipe.
Sugar — The sweetening agent that lends perfect sweetness and flavor to our Mango cake.
Mango purée — Adds moisture, flavor, and color to the cake.
Oil — Adds moisture and softness to our yummy mango cake. It is used as a substitute for butter in the recipe.
Buttermilk — Lends moistness and richness to our delicious cake. It also helps the batter to rise well.
Essence — Mango essence brings a more intense fruit flavor to the cake recipe.
Cream — Heavy whipped cream makes the best frosting to layer and decorates the cake that looks so tempting!
Cornstarch — Brings tenderness to the cake besides making it lighter and creating a softer crumb.
Yellow color — Yellow food color lends a beautiful color to the recipe, making it look attractive and completely irresistible!
Step By Step Eggless Mango cake Instructions
Prep-up — Preheat the oven to 330°F. Brush the cake pans generously with cooking oil or butter. Set it aside.
Mix wet ingredients — Combine sugar, buttermilk, oil, and mango essence in a stand mixer bowl. Beat this mixture at high speed until they are thoroughly combined.
Combine wet and dry ingredients — Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients until just combined. Add Mango purée and mix until fully incorporated into the batter.
Bake the cake — Pour the batter into the greased 2 6-inch round baking springform pans. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let the cake cool down before unmolding — Allow the eggless mango cake to cool in the pan. The cake is easier to unmold when it has completely cooled, as it leaves the greased pan quickly. So, always wait till your cake has cooled down. Carefully unmold the cooled cake onto a clean plate.
Assemble the cake — When ready to assemble, remove the cake from the springform pan. Using a sharp knife slice the cake horizontally into 2 halves.
Layer the mango cake with mango purée and whipped cream. Invert the whipped cream frosted layer (upside down) on top of the mango layer. Repeat the same with the other layer.
Now, apply a thin layer of frosting to the top and sides of the cake with a spatula. Smoothen it out and cover the entire cake. Pipe a star design all around the top and side of your cake. Add a fun touch by placing some mango scoops on the top.
This beautiful eggless mango cake makes a delicious treat for your sweet appetite.
Recipe Tips and Variations
Selecting the best mangoes — Non-fibrous and perfectly ripe Mangoes are the best for this recipe. So, while picking mangoes for your mango cake, look out for these two essential features in the mangoes. However, avoid overripe mangoes as they will alter the cake’s texture.
The yellow color may be misleading — Selecting the right mangoes is essential when making this yellow beauty. The yellow color of the mangoes is not always a surety for the ripe fruit. Watch out for the perfectly ripe mangoes that yield to slight pressure and have a seducing sweet fragrance.
To save time — You can use the store-bought mango purée for this recipe to save time. It also makes a great alternative to the homemade mango purée.
Do not dilute — Diluting the mango purée will ruin its flavor and texture and will not yield the perfect recipe. So, refrain from adding water and let the purée be thick and creamy.
Correct measurement is essential — For a perfectly baked cake, measuring the ingredients correctly is very important. Incorrect measurements will completely ruin the recipe.
Importance of sifting dry ingredients — Sifted ingredients hold more air, which helps raise the batter, resulting in the fluffy texture of the cake. Sifting also eases the mixing of the ingredients as it removes the lumps and impurities.
Use fresh ingredients — Using fresh ingredients is the key to a perfectly baked cake. Stale or old ingredients will alter their flavor and texture. For example, stale baking powder/ baking soda will not help the eggless mango cake rise and will not yield the desired results.
For an effortless blending of ingredients — Always use the ingredients at room temperature when mixing into the cake batter as they blend well with each other at similar temperatures. Bring the cool ingredients to room temperature before combining them.
Over-mixing is not recommended — Mixing the batter is essential for aerating the batter, which helps in the proper rising of the cake. But, over-mixing should be avoided, as this will over aerate the cake batter mix and turn the cake dense and chewy when baked! Mix the ingredients until they are just well combined to let a sufficient amount of air get trapped for expanding.
To release the trapped air — Tap the cake pan on the counter a couple of times to release any trapped air in the batter. This process eliminates air bubbles and confirms a smooth finish to the cake.
Both oil and butter work well — Butter lends a more buttery, rich, and creamy texture and taste, so you can use it if you prefer. Use unsalted butter for best results. If you’re using the salted butter, skip adding salt. Oil makes light cakes that also stay soft when refrigerated. You may use either; it’s a personal choice.
Verifying doneness — A simple toothpick test confirms the doneness of the cake. For this, insert a toothpick or a wooden skewer in the middle of the cake. A clean and dry toothpick coming out of the mango cake confirms that the cake is made; else, give it a few more moments in the oven.
Do not whisk the batter rapidly — A possible reason for the batter not rising as expected is that the batter may have been whisked too rapidly. This does not allow the batter to trap enough air, which is essential for rising. Hence, the cake doesn’t turn as fluffy as expected.
Leave space in the pan for rising — Do not fill the cake pan to the brim as it will not be left with any room to rise, and the batter will overflow.
Give resting time before unmolding — It is easier to unmold the eggless mango cake when it has completely cooled, as it leaves the greased sides of the pan properly. The cake may stick to the pan and break if it is still warm.
Frosting or no frosting — This recipe for Mango cake is complete in itself and tastes just divine even without the frosting. However, if you want to frost for extra glamour, you can decorate the cake with homemade frosting, just like I have done.
