{Recipe} Mango Yogurt Cotton Cake

Mango Yogurt Cotton Cake made with fresh mango puree and mango yogurt :)

Baked this cake for the boy's dad for Father's Day!

It was ultra soft, fluffy and moist!!! Almost like eating clouds  One of the rare times I'm actually satisfied with what I baked hehe. Ate a few slices at a go unknowingly :p 

Initially planned to bake a mango cotton cheesecake but i ran out of cream cheese and was too lazy to head out and get it oops

This cake was gone in no time and his family loved it :') 

Mango Yogurt Cotton Cake
adapted from here with modifications

Ingredients :

Egg Yolk Mixture

65g top flour (sifted)
1/4 tsp salt 
5 egg yolks
1 whole egg
45 ml corn oil
100ml mango yogurt
50g fresh mango puree

Egg White Mixture
5 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar 
65gm castor sugar


1. Preheat oven to 140C and line the base of a 9" square pan with grease-proof paper. 

2. Sift flour and salt.

3. Add in egg yolks, 1 whole egg, corn oil, mango yogurt and puree and whisk well until creamy and well-combined. 

4. Using an electric mixer, whisk egg whites until frothy then add in cream of tartar.

5. Add sugar in 3 batches and beat till stiff peaks.

6. Take a little meringue and beat into the egg yolk mixture to aerate the batter.

7. Fold in the rest of the egg whites in 3 batches until well-mixed. 

8. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spatula.

9. Steam-bake for 55 minutes (depending on your oven!) or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. 

10. Invert the cake upon removal from oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before removing the baking paper. 

11. Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate it due to its high moisture content! 

My only gripe was the cake tasted a little too egg-y, might remove 1 egg and increase the amount of fresh mango puree/yogurt the next time! Can't wait to experiment with other flavours :-)
