Mango Cake with Truffle


Having a daughter means...
Seeing a thousand rainbows every day
A thousand sweet dreams every night
A thousand occasions of sweet success 
And a thousand reasons to laugh and smile.
Happy Birthday sweet daughter.



As  Radhika’s Blog Hop enters another week I take this oppurtunity to wish my daughter a very Happy Birthday.

This week I am paired with Nirmala.I have visited Nirmala’s blog a few times . She is a very creative person and  has some wonderful recipes.For this Blog Hop I chose to make the eggless cake.I could have chosen some other recipe ..but since this is celebration time for us I found this apt. I always like plain cakes with some nuts but I decided to change this one with flavoring as well as icing. I made this a Mango Cake and used Truffle icing.

For the cake....
1cup.............. flour
½ cup............ oil
½ cup ............sugar
½ cup............ curd
¼ cup............. milk
1large............. mango
¼ tsp............... baking pwd
½ tsp ...............baking soda
Seive the flour, baking pwd and baking soda.
Blend the oil,sugar,milk ,curd and mango.
Fold in the flour mix with the wet ingredients.
Grease and line a mould.
Pour the batter into the mould and bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg for 35 minutes or till done.


Truffle icing
1cup.............. dark chocolate
2 cups ...........cream
Vanilla essence
Boil the cream.
Add grated choclate.
Switch off the gas.
Add vanilla essence.
Cool by placing on ice.

Assembling
Cut the cake into two equal parts.
Apply soaking syrup on both the pieces.
Apply a layer of whipped cream with some mango pieces.
Cover with the second piece.
Cover this with truffle icing.garnish with mango slices.chill and serve
The cake turned out very delicious , the truffle taste too was super but I still have to improve my skills in icing.

Soaking syrup
1/4 cup water
2tbsp icing sugar




This cake is off to Mango Mania, Vardhini's Bake Fest and Kitchen Chronicles with the theme Baked Delights.
