Mango Malai Cake

I’ve been dreaming up this cake for quite sometime now, the flavors of mango, cardamom and whipped cream are a sure hit so when it came time to bake a cake for my parents anniversary, I knew this would be it. This is an eggless cake recipe that uses minimal ingredients for the cake itself. Unlike my pistachio rose cake and saffron cream cake this Mango Malai Cake calls for condensed milk instead of yogurt! This results in a cake that has some depth so it doesn’t fall apart in the mango malai.

Tips on making Mango Malai Cake:

Preheat the oven completely before you put the cake inside the oven, it will be difficult for you to estimate the to bake.

 Sifting the dry ingredients will make the flour lighter resulting in a moist and fluffy cake.

You can replace crushed cardamom for cardamom powder.

Whipped cream works best for this cake as it’s light, mildly sweet and doesn’t take away from the creamy mango flavor.

If you don’t have fresh sweet mangoes for the purée use Indian Mango pulp/ras.

To assemble Mango Malai Cake:

  1. Frost cake with whipped cream.
  2. In serving plates add a few tablespoons of mango malai mixture to the plate. 
  3. Place a slice of cake on top.
  4. Drizzle with mango purée and pistachios

I used a rectangular baking dish and cut rectangular slices of the cake to serve. Alternatively, you can make a round cake, frost it, and have everyone drizzle their mango malai as needed.
