Mango cake with Passion fruit sauce

The King of fruits 

In India Summer season is synonymous with mangoes. Everyone cherishes some  special childhood memory with Summer season and mangoes!!!

I remember huge cartons coming from my granny's mango orchards and we kids competing who could eat maximum number of mangoes!!

The fruit is in abundance at this time of the year and the season would be incomplete  had I not made even one cake with this lovely fruit though there are plenty of options!! 

This Mango cake is a delicious coffee cake.It has walnuts which go very well with mangoes and give that required crunch to otherwise light and spongy cake.It pairs very well with the passion fruit sauce and adds nice citrus y punch to this indulgent cake.

  3. How decadent this cake sounds, just the line-up of the mango and passion fruit makes it sound so exotic.
