Servings 500 g


My Cup measures 240 ml

    1 Cup Fine Semolina

    • 1 tsp Baking Powder
    • 1/2 Cup Boora Sugar or Powdered Sugar
    • 1/4 tsp Salt
    • 1/4 Cup Oil
    • 1 Cup Mango Puree
    • 1 Tbsp Tooti Fruiti Optional


    • Peel mangoes and puree it.
    • In a bowl take semolina, baking powder, salt, and boora sugar. Mix nicely.
    • Add oil and mango puree.
    • Mix using cut and fold method.
    • Leave it for 15 minutes. This is because semolina swells up and thickens the batter.
    • Preheat oven at 180 degrees C accordingly. Like I started preheating after 10 minutes of preparing the batter as I bake in microwave convection.
    • Take the pan and grease it. If bundt like mine, then lay tooti fruiti in the base and put the cake batter. If using a normal pan then sprinkle tooti fruiti on the top. Tap the pan to release air bubbles.
    • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes till a skewer inserted comes out clean. Keep an eye 20 minutes onwards, as over baking may spoil the bright yellow colour also.
    • Take it out of the oven and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes till warm. Loosen the edges with a knife and invert it on a wire rack.
    • Cut when completely cool.
    • Serve with love, lemonade optional.


    1. Do not add any water while making mango puree.
    2. f you do not have fine semolina then put your normal semolina in the grinder and run it for 30 seconds or so. It will become fine.
    3. Boora is a type of unrefined sugar powder. If not available in your area then go for powdered sugar. But do not use brown sugar or jaggery if you want the bright yellow colour.
    4. This much quantity of mango puree is sufficient for making a perfect cake batter. However, in case, you feel that the batter is too thick then add little more puree only but nothing else.
    5. You may add baking powder in the beginning only. This is because we have double-acting baking powders wherein the subsequent reaction starts when the batter goes into the oven.
    6. No colour, no essence is needed. Do not add vanilla essence.
    7. Tooti fruiti is sprinkled just to give a contrast colour. You can easily skip this if don't like it. You may sprinkle nuts but I didn't as I am not fond of nuts.
