Magnificent Mango Fruit Cake

Magnificent Mango Fruit Cake

Vegan Dairy-Free

When I first came to Dubai 🇦🇪, the multicultural lifestyle left me awestruck.
Its food scene is a melting pot of different cuisines and traditions. The grocery aisles are no different, which leads to more food experiments.

This time around, I celebrate our city’s uniqueness by introducing the Queen of Mangos–Sindhri Aam 🥭(mango).
This sweet aromatic fruit comes from #Pakistan 🇵🇰. It is the juiciest, pulpiest, and tastiest variety in the world.


Therefore, to do it justice, I whipped up an equally delicious dessert🍰.
What’s inside this sweet treat?
A simple recipe and all-vegan 🌱ingredients create a super soft sponge cake. Each bite is a delightful explosion of mouthwatering mango 🥭.

I topped it with fresh berries 🍓to give my naked cake a pop of color. It also turns it into a dessert fit for a queen💁🏻‍♀️!
