Eggless Mango Chocolate Marble Cake

This is a long pending post, prepared it when the mango season was in full swing… just couldn’t make it to the blog but finally thought of posting it before mangoes vanish..

Mango and chocolate flavors is the pair made in heaven. This is so delicious and with no maida, no butter, the cake is a healthy option for the kids. I always enjoy doing these artistic marble cakes with new designs every time and wait for the cake to be out of the oven. How lovely they look!!

My Notes:

Each oven behaves different, so temperature settings vary.

Sieving the wheat flour mixture for 8 to 10 times is necessary step which gives good aeration to the flour (leading to less dense cake).

Sugar quantity can be adjusted based on the sweetness of mangoes.
