MOIST MANGO POUND CAKE RECIPE | CHEFDEHOME.COM
This moist, mango pound cake needs nothing more than a dusting of confectioner's sugar to set off it's classic looks. With rich tropical mango taste, and subtle notes of coconut, this easy cake is an excellent dessert to keep in mind when you have a houseful of guests.
Summers mark the OFFICIAL Mango season and it will not be fare if we don't enjoy some delicious mango desserts. Isn't it?
Can you believe, this is my first seasonal cake recipe, on blog, this year? Even though I love baking and addicted to baking breads whole season, cakes and desserts always take a back seat. Even at thought of making something sweet, my "savory" mind redirects me to a different route!
For similar reasons, cake I bake are often fruit cakes which need nothing more than dusting of powder sugar and a dollop of sweetened heavy cream, at the maximum! Such cakes can be served for an informal dessert course and are even great for tea-time snacking or a family brunch.
I specially love the fact that I can simply wrap the leftovers in plastic wrap and savor a slice with tea next day. Trust me, on contrary to box-mix, or artificial flavored cakes....... fresh fruit based cakes taste even BETTER the next day.
Pound cakes are mostly served dusted with powdered sugar. One reason, because these cakes are so rich and moist, that icing or frosting is not required!
To keep this cake rich and moist yet milk and cream free, I have used coconut milk instead of dairy cream. Whole-fat Coconut milk not just beautifully replace heavy cream, but also gives this cake a delicious coconut taste.
PS: To make this cake fully dairy free, you have to replace butter with canola oil, coconut oil or cocoa butter.
Always Make from Scratch!
For an authentic homemade texture, I bake everything from scratch and always use unbleached all-purpose flour or gluten free nut-flours for baking breads and cakes. For home baking, I don't want that fine texture which is courtesy of extra fine-ground flours like cake flours. Trust me, more fine the flour is; more mess it creates in our body.
I always have a container of all-purpose flour in pantry and I use it for almost everything. A good quality unbleached all-purpose flour is really good enough for most home baking. In-fact, while baking breads, I add a portion of Whole Wheat Flour to incorporate whole wheat nutrition into many baked goods.
One simple question to ask: Why are we baking at home? In my books, to keep it health-friendly, wholesome, and yet tasting good. In my honest opinion, if you need those fine, pure-white cakes, it is cheaper to buy one from store! But! Caution! It also comes laden with lots of unhealthy ingredients like - bleached extra-fine flours, corn syrup, artificial preservatives, and artificial flavor enhancers.
While baking a Pound Cake or any cake in general, a few things I always keep in mind:
1) Always use room temperature ingredients. (Never use fridge-cold ingredients, ever!)
2) Always make sure oven is well preheated.
3) Always measure ingredients properly.
4) Never over-bake the cake.
5) Don't over-mix the batter.
6) Don't remove cake from pan too early or too late.
And above all, always follow the recipe :)
Even though this is my first seasonal cake of the year...... I'm certain, my love for seasonal fruits and twisted classics have made to blog before.
Here are few of my favorites so far:
1. Coconut and Orange Marmalade Cake
3. Egg-less Mango Cake with Chocolate Glaze
Specially, if you are looking for an eggless cake, I highly recommend trying the Egg less Mango Cake with Chocolate Glaze. Try this recipe and you will be surprised - how moist, rich, and delicious an egg-less cake can be!
Don't wait friends! Weekend is finally here! Go get some mangoes, make Mango Pound Cake and enjoy with family!
Have a great weekend! -Savita
