A sponge cake recipe with a difference - the addition of pureed organic mango to the cake is a surprise, and the fondant icing made with white chocolate and mango is a winner!

Ingredients

  • 125 g butter, 125 g golden granulated sugar,
  • 2 large eggs
  • 125 g self raising flour (can be gluten free if necessary)
  • Mango puree: 125 g (soak dried mango strips in water till hydrated - I used organic mango with no preservative)
  • 1 x large bar (200 g) good quality white chocolate (I used Waitrose own brand)
  • 1 x packet (or more!) of good quality mini chocolate eggs with a sugar coated shell.

Method

  • STEP 1
    Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy in large mixing bowl.
  • STEP 2
    Beat eggs together in small bowl and add to mixture, beating thoroughly.
  • STEP 3
    Stir in half of blended mango mixture (should be about 2 rounded tablespoons)
  • STEP 4
    Fold in flour using a metal spoon.
  • STEP 5
    Cook: Spoon into greased or non stick cake tin and cook at 170 c for 15-20 minutes I pre-heated oven: centre should spring back to touch, and top should be golden brown. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool (when cool enough to touch pan.)
  • STEP 6
    Fondant icing: Melt chocolate in basin standing in 2 inches of boiling water in saucepan, (just on the simmer). Stir thoroughly. Remove basin from heat and stir in remainder of mango puree (approx 2 rounded tablespoons). Spread the mixture over cake while still warm.
  • STEP 7
    Decorate with mini eggs (I used Cadbury’s mini eggs with coloured pastel sugar shells).
