Fine Semolina/Rava -- 1 cup
Mango pulp -- 1 cup (You can use readymade or homemade pulp)
Butter -- ½ cup
Sugar -- ½ cup
Baking powder -- 1 tsp
Ground cardamom -- ½ tsp
Chopped walnuts/almonds -- ¼ cup
Preparation of mango cake:
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pan and keep aside.
Mix the semolina/rava with sugar, cardamom powder, chopped nuts and baking powder. Melt the butter and add it to the semolina mix and mix well.Now add the mango pulp and mix again. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
If using homemade mango pulp, make sure that you make a thick pulp. In case the pulp is thin, keep the mix aside for a while until the rava absorbs the water content.
Pour the mix into a greased pan and sprinkle some almonds on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pick or a skewer inserted inside comes out clean. Make sure you do not overbake as the upper layer of the cake becomes hard.
Let it cool and serve.
