Mango & Coconut Cake


















This is a cake I like to make for my Dad. He's one of these folks that, believe it or not, doesn't like chocolate much at all. He does, however, love to stuff his pie hole with fruity cakes and pies. So I make this one a lot when I'm at my parent's house, because it is right up his alley and is a very easy cake to whip up for breakfast or tea time.

This cake is perfect with coffee, tea, or milk. And it is naturally delicious and vegan (not a modified recipe)!

1 1/4 Cups of All Purpose Flour
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/8 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger (optional)
1/2 Ripe Mango (dime size cubes or chunks)
3/4 Cup Soy Milk
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
3/4 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
Flaked Coconut for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease a round baking pan.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and ginger. Mix thoroughly and create a well in the center. Place the milk, oil, mango, and vanilla in the well and mix gently till homogeneous. Pour into prepared baking pan and top with coconut. Bake for 27-30 min.

See how moist?


















Pretty Cake!

  4. yum! I have some organic frozen mango chunks in my freezer right now; do you think those would work?

  5. Hi Lindsey, yes, I do think they would work. I would thaw them in the fridge or on the counter first though, so that you can dab unwanted liquid off before baking. I always frozen mango too-it's great for cobblers!

  48. I was given a box of mangoes and was searching for some mango recipes today... very excited to have stumbled upon this one. Not only does it look DELICIOUS but I also had all the ingredients already (minus the coconut, lol)! So quick to prepare, and currently baking it in the oven right now. Can't wait to try it =)

  49. guoweigang f you've got a jewelry business Pandora necklace and you are selling pieces of your jewelry items atcraft shows, then you must have eye-catching designs for your jewelry on show. Fundamentally, when you display your home made jewelries, you're promoting pandora necklace beads them to the public. But sometimes you find it difficult to be subjective especially when you often see your jewelry booth and display just the same as it was before. Then it is time for you to have a jewelry display update. In this way, you can be expecting more sales from your new and creative Pandora necklace sale jewelry displays. It's not easy to choose whether you've got to update your jewelry display or not, considering that you have already invested such a lot of time and energy in making and presenting Pandora charms your items. One way to look at your booth display objectively is to use your camera during your craft show. In your free time, take many pictures of your jewelry items at your booth from different cheap pandora charms angles. If you've got a display of polymer clay jewerly, take four or 5 different photographs of the same display. Bring the photos back to your house and spread it out on a surface where you can discount pandora charmsobjectively observe them. If you find out that all your displays are not eye catching, then you have got to make a step to lift your potential sales.
