Mango Jam Cake

What about having some freshly baked Mango Jam Cake for Morning Tea using some Homemade Mango Jam and serve with a cup of tea. This little Mango gem is soft and cotton like for the cake texture, juice and fragrant for the mango jam and as well, topped with some almond flake which give it a nutty flavour when they combined together.

The making process and ingredients are very similar to the previous batch of Baked Plum RUM Cake. The different between them is for Mango Jam Cake, I used the Homemade mango jam to fill the cake and topped it with extra almond flakes.Posted by Picasa

Ingredients: (makes about 15 mini cakes)
80g Butter, room temperature
60g Sugar
1 Medium Size egg, lightly beaten
5 Tablespoons Mango Puree (get from Phoon Huat)
100g Plain Yogurt(thick texture type)
100g Cake Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Mango Essence, optional
30 - 40g Almond Flakes, lightly toasted
Snow Powder/Icing Sugar, for dusting
Apricot Glazing Gel, optional

1. Sift the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Cream the butter and sugar till creamy and white (about 5 mins), then slowly add in the egg mixture in 2 addition after beating into the butter mixture.
3. Next add in 2 tablespoon of the mango puree, 1/3 of the plain yogurt and 1/3 of the flour mixture and beat well.
4. Continue adding the puree, yogurt and flour mixture till all used up.
5. Next spoon or pipe 1/4 full of the batter into the cup case, top with 1 teaspoon of mango jam then top with the remaining batter till almost 3/4 full.
6. Repeat for the rest of the cup till all the batter use up then topped the cake with some lightly toasted almond flakes.
7. Baked in a preheat 170 degree oven for about 15 minutes or so depending on the size of the cake.

When the cake is out of the oven, cool it slightly for about 15 minutes or so. You can either brush it with some warm apricot gel or dust it with some snow powder and serve with some fruits and tea..........

a) You can get either Pauls - Natural Yogurt or Farmers Union Greek Style Yogurt.
b) If you do not have any Apricot Glazing Gel, you can replace it with 4 tablespoons Apricot jam that is warm up with 1/2 tablespoon for hot water in microwave up medium heat.
c) If you do not have any mango puree at home, you can omit it and replace it with another 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt.
