Mango and Chocolate Chips Cake

When in Goa,I always crave for mango cake available in pastry cottage,it just melts in your mouth…

But could never store it in stock as its highly perishable as fresh mango pulp is used and won’t last for more than 2 days.

This recipe was on my mind for long,finally tried it and nailed it….

Happy Me.

As I always say …for me baking is a therapy !

Here goes  this simple recipe…..

Ingredients:

100 gm Butter.

130 gm Sugar.

150 gm Flour(maida).

2 Eggs.

1 cup Mango Pulp.

1tsp Baking Powder.

1 tsp Mango/Vanilla Essence.

Few drops Orange Colour.

2 tbsp Chocolate chips.

Method:

Grease baking tin with melted butter,here I have used bread loaf tin.

Sieve together flour and baking powder thrice.

Cream butter and sugar with electric blender till it becomes light and fluffy.

Add egg one at a time,continue beating.

Add essence and colour,mix well.

Add mango pulp,mix well.

Start Preheating oven.

Fold in flour.Batter should be of dropping consistency.(when droped from spoon,should fall down smoothly)

Add little milk if required.

Pour the prepared batter in greased tin.Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
