I was thinking of preparing this since a long time. I really wanted to try out something special with mangoes.
My mom was at my home last week. She had got some mangoes from Goa. Also my hubby got mangoes from the local mega store. There were so many mangoes lying around. So finally I picked up 2 mangoes and went ahead with my experiments.
One thing that I learnt while baking cake's was, to be very careful with baking powder. In the original recipe it was mentioned to add 2 tsp baking powder. I would advise my readers to use just 1 tsp baking powder. Or else the cake might taste bitter. Somewhere I read that cooking soda can be added instead of baking powder. But still I am not sure, so can't comment much on it.
Final verdict - the cake was delicious.My mom, my hubby and my baby loved it.
