MANGO CARDAMOM CAKE

Rich and silky mango flavoured cake, with a hint of cardamom and turmeric.

  • 35 minutes
  • Serves 8
  • Easy

Directions

 

This cake is a bit different from the usual mango cakes, the turmeric is very subtle you cannot taste it over the mango and cardamom, but it is there for it’s colors and antioxidant properties :D.

 

I used ripe, Indian mangoes for this recipe which are quite sweet so I reduced the amount of sugar, making it perfectly kid friendly!

I like adding variety to Issa’s diet. You can’t ban kids from eating cake. They will go to birthdays and bakeries and will almost always ask for a slice. But I would like for him to have an acquired taste for sophisticated cakes, instead of birthday cakes that are loaded with buttercream and almost flavoured only with sugar.

Did you know that when you bake turmeric with baking soda you get this orange/red colour, almost like an all natural red velvet cake!
