Eggless Mango Cake Recipe – spongy, moist mango cake recipe. Perfect dessert for summer season or for mango lovers.
As mangoes are in season, I made this cake last week. This is hubby’s most favorite mango cake. So I make this cake every season.
This mango cake is very spongy, soft and really moist. and mango flavors just pop out with the sweetness. I have added cardamom powder just like we use it in our Indian desserts. But if you don’t like this spice then you can skip it. Check out the tips section below for other variation in flavors.
I have used sweetened condensed milk which gives really nice flavors and sweetness. This works as an egg replacer in the recipe. To make it rich, I have used melted butter here. There is one other mango cake recipe by Vaishali which is made using oil. If you are vegan then check out her recipe. It must be delicious as I have seen many bloggers made her cake. though I haven’t tried it. Because I always make Mango cake with condensed milk just like my eggless chocolate cake and eggless vanilla cake.
To bring out the mango flavor at its best, always use good quality mangoes like alphonso and kesar. Here in USA, I am not getting these types of mangoes, so I have used canned alphonso mango pulp. But my mom made the same cake recipe using fresh pulp in India and it was perfect.
Drizzle of mango sauce on top was just out of the world. I have drizzled it only on one slice of cake while sprinkled powdered sugar on the rest. Because I had planned to serve the cake on next day , so I used sauce right before serving as I didn’t want the cake to be so soggy.
