Mango Chocolate Marble Cake | Eggless Butterless Baking | HBC#2

P.S: Sorry for the dull not-so-good photos... My P&S has given up and all were taken using my mobile...

After trying our hands on pizzas, we the homebakers of the HBC group are here with another easy and yummilicious bake. We were challenged by Sangeetha of Spicy treats to bake a cake combining two exotic ingredients ~ Mango and chocolate. I love mango and I can live on chocolate, so the challenge could not get any better. We were given two recipes ~ one recipe was an eggless and butterless bake while the other was with eggs and butter.

I am never into Eggless and butterless baking except the Vegan Mango Walnut Loaf which I tried last year and then again this no fail eggless vanilla sponge which I tried sometime back for the kid's monthly bake. But other than these I never try eggless n butterless baking... I try butterless baking many a times but eggless, not frequently... I am always into the conception that eggs are so essential for the cake to be soft, spongy and airy. And so I never go for eggless baking.

Moving on to the challenge, just like Sangee, its been my long time wish to combine the two flavors (mango and chocolate) in a cake. It all started with the Mango Chocolate Chunk cake that I tried last summer... The deep mango flavor in a moist crumb speckled with slightly melted dark chocolate chunks was to die for. The challenge was right in time. I went the fat-less way because my oven was just out of service and I wanted to trial-check it with a simple bake. This recipe sounded just right.

Half the bake was given to the kids of some daily laborers living near our house. They loved every bite of the cake and I got kisses and hugs in return... The perfect cost that one can get. Never knew that a warm smile from them would make me so satisfied... The remaining cake was divided again ~ one part for the PILs (parent-in-laws) and the second part for amma and me. Then again I had to set aside a major part for the kid... Whenever amma and me sat down with a slice for our evening tea, he would be there shuttling between the two for his rightful share... Do I need to tell that he enjoyed every bite???

~*What U Need*~
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 3/4 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Sugar - 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp mixed in 2 tbsp warm water
Oil - 3 tbsp(Canola oil)
Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp
Manga pulp - 1/2 cup
Milk + Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Buttermilk - 2 tbsp

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 175C and grease & line your baking tin. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar & oil then to this add mango pulp, milk, yogurt, vanilla, buttermilk and mix well.

Mix the mango-milk mixture to the dry ingredients slowly till combined well.

Now take a small cup, add cocoa powder & 2 tsbp warm water and mix well. Then transfer half of the mango batter to another bowl and add this cocoa paste and combine well. Now both ur mango batter & chocolate batter are ready. Then to the cake tin, add mango n cocoa batter alternatively like a checker board pattern or simply fill with vanilla batter then add remaining cocoa batter in 3 small circles, make swirls as u like.

Tap the pan gently to set the batter evenly and bake it for 50-55 minutes or until done(check by inserting a knife or toothpick which should come out clean).

Serve with love!!!

** My Notes:
** I used fresh mango pulp. But you can use store bought sweetened pulp. In that case reduce the sugar.
** The cake is dense but super moist and flavorful.
** You can fill upto 3/4th of the pan, as this cake does not rise too much.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
