Vegan Mango Cake

Mango season in India is the bestest ever as all Indians living overseas will tell you. My husband was talking about how amazing that time of the year is in India, mangoes are so cheap and in abundance, every household ate a ton of mangoes every year … We on the other hand over in NZ have mango puree tins LOL in our house … I remember going to the Indian store over here last year and almost fainted seeing the prices on the imported Indian mangoes

Summary

    Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups Mango Puree :
    1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour :
    1/3 cup Oil :
    2/3 cups Sugar :
    1 tsp Vanilla :
    2 tsps Baking Powder :
    1/2 tsp salt :
    1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder :
    180 C Pre heat the oven to / 350 F
    In a bowl mix the flour , baking powder , salt and cardamom powder

    Steps

    1. In another, whisk the mango puree, oil, sugar and vanilla and slowly add the flour mixture to it, and combine well so there are no floury bits or lumps anywhere
    2. Pour this batter into a greased cake pan and bake until the cake has cooked through ( a skewer should come out clean)
    3. Took about 30-40mins
    4. Once the cake has cooled, dust it with some icing sugar
    5. I had some left over mango puree, so I drizzled some of that
    6. I definitely will give this a shot with some fresh mangoes the next time
    7. Quite an easy cake, you could reduce the amount of sugar too, and it will just taste fine
