Egg-free Mango loaf cake

 

I’m super excited to share this egg free Mango loaf cake. It was just an experiment, and it worked out beautifully! I used my sponge cake as a base for this recipe, played around with the quantities and completely skipped the eggs. The eggs were swapped for mango puree. And let me tell you, I didn’t miss the eggs at all. The cake was super moist and bursting with mango flavor, and look at the gorgeous color! Such a visual delight!

Hello folks!

How is everyone? How are your holiday preps coming along? Today I have another classic Goan sweet to share with you’ll.  ‘Doce’ and ‘grão’ means ‘sweet’ and ‘grain/bean’ in Portuguese. This is almost like a fudge, made of chana dal ( split Bengal gram) , freshly grated coconut, sugar and flavored with cardamom. It is quite a tedious and time consuming dessert, but the results are so worth it! I promise! Continue reading →

Mango parfait

I had some leftover canned mango pulp that was sitting in the ziplock bag, which I could have easily had as it is! But the blogger in me was itching to do something with it. Browsed through my refrigerator , I had a sponge cake, cool whip and I had recently bought mangoes from the grocery store ! So I already knew what I was making – parfait it was. The previous night I prepared the jelly and let it set , so I could put this together the next day. This is quite similar to the fruit custard and jelly I’ve shared earlier , except this time I took the shorter way out and used cool whip instead of making the custard. You could also use some yogurt , sweeten it and whisk it well to get rid of any lumps. To make it even more decadent how about a cream cheese plus condensed milk mixture ? Aahh endless possibilities, there is always a next time 🙂 Continue reading →
