"Luscious Mango Cake"

In keeping with the mango season, here's another recipe i tried this weekend & it was absolutely divine. 
Vanilla cake can be frosted with practically anything and everything.You can run your imagination wild with the things available & create a super dessert for any occassion or day. So this time I decided to make complete use of mangoes and chocolate to create this dessert.
I hope you liked my previous mango recipes and would love to try this one too.
For cake sponge please refer to my "Eggless Tea Cake" or "Britannia Fruit Cake" recipe. Else you can make any of your favourite plain vanilla sponge cake recipes.

Enjoy this delicious dessert & do post your feedback. 

"Luscious Mango Cake"

Ingredients :

8" vanilla sponge cake 
250 gms cottage cheese or cream cheese
2 mangoes - ripe ( small)
4 tsp thick curd
3/4 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup thick cream
1 bar chocolate - optional
2 tsp chocolate powder or cocoa powder
mango or cherries for decoration

Preparation :
  • Grease a cake mould with little butter or line it with cling film to set the cake pudding
  • Blend cottage cheese or cream cheese with mango pieces in a blender till smooth 
  • Add curd and sugar and blend again till it becomes smooth and silky
  • Whip cream in a seperate bowl till light and fluffy. Fold this into the mango mixture gently to avoid incorporating any air or bubbles
  • Cut the sponge cake into two halves.
  • Put one layer in the bottom of the tin and pour half of the mango batter to form an even layer
  • Place the second piece of cake on top and pour the remaining mango mix. 
  • Decorate it with chocolate pieces, mango pieces and cherries
  • Dust the cake with chocolate powder
  • Freeze it for 2-3 hours till firm and set
  • Unmould it gently, cut slices and serve chilled
Note -- for decoration, you can melt chocolate and design the top of cake into various designs with the help of cookie cutters. To make mango rounds use any small round measuring spoon.
