Mango Coconut Cake


Right. Not the best in visuals. Picturing fumbling again from my side. Guess, it does happen. Its not always the best picturing out of my camera and kitchen. Nevertheless, one thing is assured. This Nava K made Mango Coconut Cake will not let you down. It won't. Additionally, I must tell you that this is not a spongy crumbly cake. This cake on the other hand is a soft and compact cake. Due to I didn't want to make use of baking soda or powder. I didn't for a change (Pineapple Bread Pudding). Not even a tiny bit. Of course, mangoes and coconut (Mango Coconut Jelly, Coconut Pandan Jelly, Coconut Panna Cotta & Grapefruit Coconut Jelly), even lemons are my best friends. I sincerely love them, hopefully vice-versa (Lemon Buttermilk Cake). Alright, lets get to the dessert moment recipe now (Cream Puff, Creme Caramel). Actually nothing much I have to say, except you should go with the flow as listed below for the love of our sweet treat Mango Coconut Cake. Bye guys. Catch up soon.
