Mango Cake




Ummmmmm, the picture itself was tempting enough when I came across the cake in Purnima's blog here, from where I hopped on to Pushpa's blog where the original one was.
This was lingering on my mind for sometime and there was no peace until I made it and to my delight, it was the best cake I've ever tasted. Moist and light. Not something you can avoid for a long time :)....This is something I know, I will making many more times...So thanx to Purnima and Pushpa.

I just took the exact same recipe from Purnima. She however had not added the lime juice she said. I added that also and the result was indeed a delightful one :)
Take a look at Pushpa's recipe here.

Ingredients

All purpose flour-1 cup
Bicarbonate soda - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Butter - 1/2 cup, softened
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Mango puree - 3/4 cup ( I used mango pulp )
Milk - 1/2 cup
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Mango essence - 1/4 tsp ( I did not add this )

Method

- Sieve the Baking powder, Bicarbonate Soda, All-purpose flour and salt together. Set aside
- Beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add the egg to it and beat well.
- Stir in the mango pulp, lime juice and the essence.
- Add the flour mixture and milk alternately, starting and ending with the flour.
- Pour the mix into a greased pan or lined with wax paper.
- Bake at 345F for about 30 mins or till a toothpick or skewer inserted comes out clean.
- Take out from oven, cool for about 10 mins in the pan and then cool completely on wire-rack.
- Cut into pieces and serve. Store in airtight container ( if any is left to store ;), that is)....

I just made this cake and even though I followed the instructions, I'm not sure what went wrong as it turned out extremely greasy. Also, the mango flavor didn't come through very well. The orange/yellow color also didn't come out well..it looked more brownish. Any ideas what I might've done wrong?
