Eggless Mango Cake / Mango Loaf Bread

I wanted to utilise the mango season completely and no mango recipe collection is complete with a mango cake...Agree?! I have seen mango cakes, muffins and bread in so many blogs and when I wanted to try I went ahead searching for them. The one that suited my constraints(Yes I wanted a low fat version) was the mango banana bread from litebite. I am always amazed by her low fat baking goodies that I went ahead to try this with few modifications to suit my taste and it turned out super good.
Eggless Mango Cake / Mango Loaf Bread Recipe


Eggless Mango Cake (Mango Loaf Bread) - Ingredients
Recipe Source : Litebite.in
  • Maida - 1 cup (135 gms)
  • White Rava(fine variety) - 1/2 cup (60 gms)
  • Mango - 1 big sized
  • Walnuts chopped - 2 tbsp
  • Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup (165 gms)
  • Curd - 1/4 cup (60 ml)
  • Olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Eggless Mango Cake / Mango Loaf Bread Recipe
Method:
  1. Chop the mangoes and puree it without water to get a thick pulp. Keep aside.
  2. Sift maida, baking soda, baking powder and salt atleast twice for even spread of baking powder and soda.Now add rava to the maida mixture, keep aside.
  3. In a seperate bowl, add oil,yogurt, mango pulp, cardamom powder,sugar and mix well till sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Now add the curd mango mixture to rava maida mixture slowly and mix until a thick batter is formed. Add chopped walnuts and mix once. Reserve 1 tbsp of walnuts for topping.
  5. Preheat the oven at 190 deg C for 10mins. Meanwhile grease the pan with little oil and sprinkle maida. Arrange butter paper if you use it(I use for most of the cake for easy unmoulding).
  6. Transfer the batter to the cake pan. Top the cake batter with remaining chopped walnuts and bake it for 35-40mins at 190 degree C.In my OTG it took exactly 40mins for the mango bread to get baked.
  7. The top would have turned to a golden brown color by this time. Check with a toothpick in the center of the cake and if it comes out clean then ur cake is done.Cool it for atleast 15mins before you unmould and slice them.

I dont miss to use a butter paper these days as its mess free to unmould and cleaning the pan is also easy. For the tart mould I didnt even grease but still unmoulding was super easy. 
Eggless Mango Muffins RecipeMy Notes:
  • I used a bread loaf pan and 3 small tart moulds.You can use a normal cake pan but see to it that the pan is as big as to hold the batter only to 1/2 or slightly more than the pan .
  • The baking time totally depends on the cake mould and the oven, usually my bread loaf pan takes a little longer so it took me 40mins. So keep an eye after 30mins and then extend baking time accordingly.
  • The cake in the tart moulds were done in 20mins. Only the bread loaf pan took 40mins to complete.So if you are planning for muffins it will take just 20-30mins.
  • Adding sooji gives a wonderful texture to the cake. Mango and cardamom combination is heavenly so dont skip it.
  • The orginal recipe calls for only 1/2 cup sugar but I felt my mangoes were not that sweet so I used 3/4 cup and it was perfect.
  • As the cake uses mango pulp, it keep well only for 2 days. Dont refrigerate the cake, as it would become hard.

Mango, curd and rava gives a wonderful texture to the cake/bread that the cake came out beyond my expectation that everyone loved it at home. The nutty crunch in every bite tasted out of the world...yummmy.

The mango bread looked so lovely that my camera didnt stop clicking at all :) The smell of the mango cake while it was baking was too gud that I cudnt move out of the kitchen. Usually I like cutting cakes into pieces and when it comes to slicing breads I just luv them and this cakes texture was just perfect to make slices. Trust me and go ahead to try this cake.

  53. Recipe looks very delicious. Just a small info needed. Can I use the Upma variety rava here? Because the one which I see as fine variety rava is almost like flour. So please give your suggestion here.

    ReplyDelete
  54. @Anonymous : Yes you can use the one used for upma but the white variety....

    ReplyDelete
  55. mmm this sounds so delicious, i adore mango but have never had mango bread. About time this was changed i think!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hai..I tried this Mango cake as cup cake and it came out well...But, only one problem...i find the texture of sooji in the cake...I used the idli rava...should I soak the rava in water for some time??

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Tamilmuhil : Thanks for trying and letting me know the feedback.It is the fine variety we used for kesari and upma but if you dont like the texture of rava then go ahead with full maida. No need to soak in water.

  58. This recipe is so good…n’ the snaps look so gorgeous…i recently made some mango cake…really liked that too…will try this the next time arnd.

  59. This recipe looks beautiful. I will try it when mangoes are back in circulation, surely. I was wondering, after the success with your other recipes, if you had a good sandwich bread recipe on your blog. But found only this. If you do make white/brown bread yourself, could you add it to your blog? Since i gave up my bread machine I haven't found the right recipe at all.

  62. hello, great recipe..some questions...can we use one cup of mango pulp instead of one mango?and can we use half cup of maida instead of using half a cup of fine sooji.how do the texture and tastes differs using half cup sooji and not using only plain flour for the recipe.which tastes better?using only plain flour or using 1 cup plain flour and half a cup of sooji....pls do answer .i want to try this great recipe soon.

    ReplyDelete
  63. @Anonymous : Yes you can replace mango with mango pulp but the quantity depends on the batter thickness(3/4 cup - 1 cup should do fine). Am not sure of how to explain the texture of the cake with sooji...but we liked it that way also the orginal recipe suggested it. You can try with full maida first if you are skeptical about the texture when sooji is added.Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wonderful blog and healthy recipes.Thanks sharmi.

    ReplyDelete
  65. hello i jus tried ur mango cake receipe..but i hd a problem,...intially the cake rose well but when i removed it from oven it kind of settled back n became hard..dnt knw what went wrong..hope u cld help me.

    ReplyDelete
  66. @Swati : Oh..I'm not sure why it sinked, may be becos of the rising agent inactiveness?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I Made this Cake.. and it was Yummmmm...
    However i didnt add sooji.. replaced it with maida itself..
    Just one question to ask..
    I have a oven that has even multiples of temp ie
    120 140 160 and so on..many a times the cake calls for a baking time of 190 deg or so..
    how to adjust the baking time and temp to get the same effect??

    ReplyDelete
  68. @Archana : That is great to know! My oven also has odd multiples and just adjust to intermediate and keep when it calls for 190, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi

    I hv tried this recipe today but it didn't work well as i expected. My cake was raw at bottom and it had not risen properly. i don't know the problem. i hv kept it for 35-40 mins in oven. plz suggest something...:( :(

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Khatri : I am really not sure what went wrong...without seeing the consistency of the batter it is hard to judge where and what went wrong for a baby baker like me :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Sharmi,if wanna add eggs to tis...how many i should use....also i wanna try ur dates muffin,how eggs i should add for tat ??i feel eggs make the cake or muffin softer,if i skip them wont it b hard ???hav u ever felt any difference???as i'm new to baking,i get hundreds of questions every time b4 i begin :( pls don mind if it(my Qs) sounds silly...

    ReplyDelete
  72. @Geethu: Np at all :) Yes eggs give a great texture and fluffiness to the cake but I dont find major issues with eggless bakes too... But sorry I am not sure of converting an eggless version to a version with eggs. I just try from the orginal recipe with very minor modification.

    ReplyDelete
  73. K got it.....thanks for the reply....

    ReplyDelete
  74. Sharmi,i tried it yesterday,instead of olive oil i added normal sunflower oil....but it was so hard ,i think it shld b due to tat rava(i used upma rava)!!!i used the exact measure u mentioned for all the ingredients but it didnt come out well :( feeling sad!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. @Geethu : Oh I am really not sure what went wrong...I used the fine rava variety too. Sorry to hear that.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hi Sharmi,I made this cake yesterday.it came out pretty well except for two things: 1) the texture was lil moist. 2)the flavor of rava, I felt was raw.so r v supposed to roast it before adding it to d cake mixture?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No I didnt roast rava, not sure why you felt the raw taste....May be if you dont like rava taste, then may be you can skip it and try fully maida cake.

  77. Hi Sharmi,

    I tried this cake yesterday. Inside, the cake was moist, bread like.... But the crust - both top and bottom tasted too much like crispy rawa... and inspite of the mango being overly sweet, I used 3/4 cup sugar coz I read your notes below the recipe after I made the cake... lol... still the cake was not at all sweet... The next time, if I increase teh sugar quantity to 1 cup, should I also increase the liquid ingredients?

    Regards,
    Aakriti

    1. The sweetness purely depends on ur mango, taste it and then adjust sugar level accordingly.Just increase sugar level no need to increase other ingredients.
