Guysssss!!!!!!! you gotta try this four layer eggless mango cake . I am happy to share one of my favorite summer cake recipe with you today which is a dream of every mango lover. This moist and spongy mango cake is layered with homemade easy mango pudding for a great fruity punch and further layered with this creamy dreamy whipped cream cheese frosting.Moreover this mango cake recipe is egg free , has no butter or condensed milk .
It is made with simple ingredients that you will find in your kitchen. Make this cake with fresh mangoes when they are in season or canned mango pulp all year round.
The eggless mango cake recipe that I am sharing with you today tastes great on it’s own. But if you have some time on hand do make the mango pudding as well as the whipped cream cheese frosting . It won’t take much time to make these components. The moment you will take the very first bite of this four layered dreamy mango cake you will be happy that your effort was worth it!
I am not much of a icing fan. I love my cakes straight out of the oven. But this frosting is so so good and it complements the fruity taste from the mangoes perfectly. This whipped cream cheese frosting is a combination of cream cheese and whipping cream which makes this frosting lighter than the classic buttercream. What I like about this frosting is that it isn’t overly sweet. A perfect fruity cake for everyone to enjoy!
You might be thinking why am I posting cake recipes back to back. It’s mango season and I terribly miss mangoes from India 🙁 My instagram is filled with people flaunting a big bowl of alphonso mangoes or enjoying aam ras . These mango cravings got me to make this mango cake. I got a great response on my eggless tiramisu poke cake that I posted last week that is why I couldn’t wait to share this delicious cake recipe with you.

I wanted to keep the frosting simple hence went for a rustic look. I have frosted the cake with some yellow and orange tinted whipped cream cream cheese frosting on the outside of the cake and topped it with two tone swirls. I have even added a quick mango rose in the center. Making this rose is so much fun plus you get to taste real slices of mangoes in your cake!
