The cake is considered a symbol of celebration as it is served in ceremonies such as birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries all over the world. The word chocolate has become synonymous with cake as the chocolate flavour is the most common flavour of cake that is widely consumed. Apart from it, butterscotch and vanilla are also among the commonly preferred flavours for a cake.
In earlier times, baking a cake was more of an intricate process since a lot of time and effort was involved in the preparation along with the need for a conventional oven. However, in recent times, it has become much easier to bake a cake with the availability of premixes and an abundance of knowledge from the various types of recipes. The main ingredient for a traditional cake is flour and the cake is made fluffy by the introduction of an egg.
However, this recipe is going to be a vegetarian delight as we won’t be using any eggs while baking the cake. This cake will also have a unique taste to it as we will be introducing the sweetness of mango along with the goodness of honey to it. This mango honey cake can be a perfect match for your teatime alongside a cup of tea.
We will be using Aashirvaad Superior MP Atta as our choice of flour due to its purity. This aashirvaad atta is made from whole wheat grains and consists of 100% wheat flour without any adulteration. This atta will add nutritional value to our mango honey cake.
- ½ cup Aashirvaad Superior MP Atta
- ¼ cup Yoghurt
- ¼ cup Honey
- 6 tsp Oil
- 6 tsp Milk
- ¼ tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp Sugar (powdered)
- 1 tbsp Butter
- 8 Mango Pieces (sliced)
Take a bowl and add yoghurt, honey and oil to it, mix these ingredients well to form a paste-like consistency. Take a strainer and strain the Aashirvaad atta through it so we get fine atta in a bowl. Now add baking soda, baking powder and salt to the atta and mix well.
Then add milk and vanilla extract to the atta and mix well till you get a loose dough-like mixture. Now take a circular baking pan and apply butter to the bottom of the pan. Spread the batter evenly in all parts of the pan. Sprinkle the powdered sugar all over the butter in the pan.
Place your mango pieces in a circular pattern all over the pan, starting clockwise. Place your dough over these mango pieces and spread evenly throughout the pan. Now bake the batter in an oven at 160 degrees Celsius for around 50 mins. You can also bake the cake in a cooking pan if you don’t have access to an oven or a microwave.
Take a cooking pan and add salt all over the pan and cover it evenly with salt. Place a heatproof stand inside the pan and preheat the pan by placing the lid on top. Now, place the batter inside the pan, the batter should be ideally kept in an aluminium container for cooking. Close the lid and bake for around 30 mins till the cake rises. Garnish the cake with honey on top to serve.
