Lime and Mango Cake

Recipe and photographs by Rottem Liberzon of the blog Cooking Therapy

You bought 3 beautiful aromatic mangos at the greengrocers, kept in the refrigerator, had 2 of them and only noticed the third when it got too soft…. What can be done? Instead of throwing it out, you can make a refreshing cake for your morning coffee.

Ingredients:

5 limes, separated into juice and zest (you can use limes that began shrinking, or substitute with lemons)

4 eggs (an opportunity to use eggs near their expiry date)

1 cup sugar

1 yogurt

200 gr butter, melted

2 cups self-rising flour

 Ripe mango, diced into 1 cm cubes

For icing:

100 gr powdered sugar

4 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp lime zest

1 tbsp water (as necessary)

Preparation:

Use the flat beater in your mixer to mix the sugar and butter to receive a puffy mixture. Slowly and gradually add the eggs, then the yogurt, juice of 4 limes, and a tablespoonful of lime zest. Finally, add the flour and mix shortly to receive a homogenous mixture.

Pour the mixture into a well-greased and floury baking tray (you can substitute the flour for sugar).

Place the diced mango on the mixture, put in the oven at 180 degrees for 50-60 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out dry and the cake is slightly brown at the edges).

The icing:  Put the lime juice and powdered sugar in a small pot, cook on a small flame for about 5 minutes to receive thick syrup (if needed, add a tablespoon of water to thin out). Add the rest of the lime zest and pour over the cake when it is out of the oven and still hot.

Garnish with some lime zest and make a cup of coffee.
