Mango and cardamom are like made for each other. They are a perfect combo in any desert. I wanted to try this in a cake and was inspired by a newspaper cutting that i saved from 6yrs before. It's not a cake from the scratch, but its a quickie and tastes soo good.
So this is what I used plus mango pulp, cardamom and sliced almonds, bought from Indian store.
The important thing is to use a cake mix with pudding added in it. Pilsbury and Betty crocker have pudding added, but not Duncan & Hines. The package says to use 1 stick of butter, 3 eggs, preheat oven to 350F which I followed. it calls for 1 1/4 cup water. I used 1/2 cup of mango pulp and 1/4 cup of water. I used 4 cardamom and powdered them. Add this to the mixture , dgarnish with sliced almonds and bake as per pack instructions.
if you want you could use some whipped topping as frosting, but we ate it plain and enjoy the mango flavor... Yum yum.....!
I am dedicating this cake to Priya ( yallapantula) who was my first blog friend who has supported me a lot. Thanks a lot priya!
Try this and you won't regret one bit!
