About This Cake
Fruit flavoured cakes are my family favourite. I love filling cakes with lots of seasonal fruits. Fruits bring taste, texture, flavour and nutrients to cake.
Of many fruit cakes, mango semolina cake is one of the most loved recipe among my friends and family. I find this mango cake easy to make and perfect to satiate sweet little cravings with no guilt.
I kept the cake recipe simple. You can try adding nuts of your choice. I have listed tips and variations you can bring in this cake recipe.
What is Semolina?
Semolina is a milled flour of durum wheat, used mainly in making pasta. In North India, semolina is called sooji or suji, which is mainly used in making halwa, kheer, etc. In South India, semolina is called rava, which is mainly used in making upma, pongal, payasam, etc.
Semolina is nothing but suji (rava). So, we can also call this cake as Mango Rava Cake or Mango Suji Cake.
Main Ingredients To Make Mango Semolina Cake
Semolina: You will need fine semolina to make this cake. If fine semolina is not available, then pulse semolina in a jar for 10 seconds. The cake should be grainy not soft.
I roasted the semolina; you can skip that step. Roasted semolina bring nice taste and flavour in cake.
Mango: You can either use mango juice or pulp. If mangoes are in season, prefer using pulp. If not in season, then you can use mango juice.
Cardamom: A pinch cardamom powder brings nice aroma in cake. Cardamom with mango, is match made in gastronomical heaven.
Olive Oil: I prefer using olive oil in mango cake. This too complements the flavour of cake.
Icing Sugar: I generally prefer using icing sugar in my microwave cake recipes. Icing sugar is fine and tends to dissolve easily making it best for microwave cake.
Tips and Variations:
Banaganapalli or Imam Pasand or Alphanso are my choice of mangoes for any dessert recipes. These mango varieties are natural sweet and bring in good flavour in any recipe.
Chopped almonds or pistachio bring nutty crunch in the cake.
A tablespoon of coconut powder is the game changer in this cake recipe.
If available, try adding dried cranberries or black raisins. This taste delicious in a mango cake.
I used olive oil, you can use any flavourless oil like sunflower or canola oil.
