I have been dreaming about mangoes for some time now. So made this insanely delicious eggless mango marble cake. This one is the most amazing loaf cake that I have ever baked till date. It’s moist and tender without addition of any eggs or butter. It is not just an ordinary chocolate and vanilla marble cake. This simple eggless tea time cake is infused with fruity notes coming from mangoes. A subtle hint of chocolate on top with a delectable crunch from almonds takes this cake to a different level altogether.
I am all set to welcome Spring with this yummy cake that tastes so good without any frosting. A slice of this mango cake is like sunshine on your plate. The addition of chocolate doesn’t overpower the taste of mangoes. Overall this loaf cake will shine bright on your brunch table.
I have been getting lot of requests for easy mango cake from my reader’s from India. This post is absolutely not a planned one but one of the best ones from my archives. I was browsing previously recorded recipes sitting on my laptop and found this gorgeous moist yellow cake with hint of chocolate and almonds gazing at me . And I thought why not share it sooner , so that you start making and enjoy it with the very first batch of mangoes you buy.
If mangoes are not in season you can even make this cake using canned mango puree readily available in grocery stores and enjoy it all year long. ( I have tested this recipe both ways and it tastes great) .
What is this moist Eggless mango marble cake made of ?
Mangoes of course . Previously when I shared this recipe with you in 2016 I used Mexican mangoes that are readily available in USA so it had just a light fresh fruity mango flavor. This time I have used Indian canned mango puree which is available in Indian stores.
The top is rich chocolate batter – wasn’t planned . Chocolate layer was a last minute thing , as my son loves anything chocolaty .He walked into the kitchen while I was prepping up the cake and insisted on a chocolate one , so just topped a thin layer with chocolate batter . And I am glad I did . I thought chocolate & strawberry is the only combination to die for . I was wrong , mango + chocolate is killer too.
Topped with some toasted chopped almonds .Overall this cake is absolutely rich and gets finished in no time.
The best part is it doesn’t requires frosting and tastes great warm – right out of the oven or chilled – right out of the fridge.
This eggless marble cake recipe is absolutely forgiving and sweetness and consistency can be adjusted to your taste.
Step By Step making of Eggless mango marble cake loaf –
Sift dry ingredients in one bowl. Whisk in liquid ingredients in another bowl. Meantime I melt chocolate in the microwave and let it cool down a bit.
Then I mix liquid and dry ingredients and whip them together until lump free.
After that I scoop few tablespoons of batter and mix it with the melted chocolate. I put the mango batter in the pan followed by the chocolate batter. To create a marble effect I randomly run a fork in the center cutting through swirling vertically . Top it with nuts ( optional). and bake it until toothpick inserted comes out clean or with few moist crumbs.
Bake it until toothpick inserted comes out clean or with few moist crumbs. Cool it completely on a cooling rack before cutting for neat slices.
I am not responsible if your family polishes the cake before you can even taste it. Be prepared to make many more and save some for yourself 🙂
Given below is the recipe followed by substitutes and tips . Further queries are welcome in the comment section.

The old photos clicked in 2016- Baked using 9*5 ” Loaf Pan .
The pictures aren’t that great , it’s a good example how I sucked at photography before blogging. It’s amazing that I have always concentrated on making food and never thought of clicking nice pictures . But my friend , it’s the yummiest mango cake ever. I had posted this in 2014 when I wasn’t a blogger but shared recipes on various facebook groups . Not only me , many of my reader’s have enjoyed and vouched for it .

Made this cake today without chocolate. It turned out to be very moist and airy. I added some almonds and tutti frutti on the top and it was nearly perfect. Thank you for your amazing recipes. 🙏🏼
I made your mango chocolate cake this weekend. It was delicious. Thanks for introducing me to this delicious combination. Your recipes are awesome.
I simply loved the photos you have shared Ritu, thank you for trying it.
You are my go to person for everything new that I try. Your recipes are just perfect with so much detailing that they are totally no fail recipes. Tried the cake. Simply lip smacking. I just love your recipes ans detailing. I follow many bloggers but I must say few have this perfection. I am a big fan of yours. Thank you for your great recipes. Inhave tried many.
Thank you, Priti. I am glad you enjoy my recipes! This is very encouraging. I am feeling so happy right now! Hugs!!
OMG…. This is the BEST Mango-cake recipe I have ever tried. Its so moist, light, and scrumptious.
Thank you so so very much for sharing this NO_FAIL recipe with us. Lots of love <3
This mango cake turned out super yum! The colour and glaze were amazing. I omitted the chocolate part this time but will definitely give it a try next time around. Perfect recipe and instructions. I am a big fan 💕
Can i use cocoa powder instead of choco chips?
Yes, but you will have to add some sugar and water to achieve the consistency and taste!
Hi can I use frozen mango puree, I would really love to try this recipe , as I have lots of pureed mango frozen
Yes Deshni, frozen mango works. Just bring it to room temperature. The consistency should be like a smoothie. If it is a pulp then thin it with some milk or water.
Hi. If i use dates instead of sugar, how much shd i use? And any other adjustments to any other ingredients cauz of adding dates? Pls let me know
Hello Mo, I haven’t tried this recipe with dates. If you use dates I suggest use chopped instead of puree as this cake already has mango puree. Too much puree isn’t advisable for this recipe.
Made this delicious bread today and my toddler loved it. I was out of chocolate, so made it just with the mangoes and tasted great nevertheless. Thanks for the recipe, Khusboo !
Hi khusboo.. Can I use cocoa powder instead of chips. ND what will be the proportion. Thank u
Thank you for the recipe, I’ll be trying it today! One question in your vegan option at the bottom – how does substituting canned mangoes with fresh mango puree make it vegan? what in the canned mangoes is not vegan?
Hi Hue, I use canned mango puree that has added sugar. It’s the one I bring from an Indian grocery store . Mostly Kesar or Alphoso variety. Hope you try this recipe.
Yes, with white chocolate chips instead of chocolate chips. I’m guessing it won’t work as when mixed with the batter it would give a pale orange colour instead of a white. Even then I’m unsure what it would look and taste like after being baked. Maybe it better to just top it with white chocolate chips instead.
White chocolate will just make it extra sweet and there won’t be any marble effect seen. Yes you can top it with white chocolate if you like it that way.
Would this work with white chocolate?
Sorry I did not understand your question Panna. White chocolate inside the cake?
I’m always following your recipes and trying them . You have some very fail safe cake recipe . Do you have a recipe of banana walnut cake (without chocolate ). I always make your eggless chocolate , vanilla and red velvet cake .
Thanks for sharing your awesome recipes with everyone
Hi Sonali, thank you. I will surely share that recipe soon!
thanku mam For such a great recipee i tried it today it comes out spongy moistt sUoerbb thanks alot
Thats great Mandeep. Thank you for a lovely feedback!
Made it in a round pan following instructions. Added more milk to adjust the consistency. We loved it . Mango taste was great . Thank you.
Sounds great Bela.
Can I do icing of whipping cream over this cake
Of course why not. Any frosting you like Neha
Hi, must say I am drooling over your cake recipe.. Going to try soon. But after putting the mango batter how do I put the chocolate batter on top of it? Won’t it mix?
Actually I am newbie in baking, so don’t have much idea.
No Angira , as you see the photos , it won’t get mixed up. The batter is thick enough for that. Hope you like it!
This is the first cake recipe which I tried from your blog. Everything has been explained so properly that even a non-baker like me can easily understand. The cake was very soft & yummy. Everyone loved it. The only mistake I did was that I mixed almonds with chocolate. But, it wasn’t looking bad either. Looking forward to try other cakes.
I am glad you liked this recipe Parisha, thank you for a lovely feedback!
Tried this cake today with fresh mango puree. Yummylicious and my daughter loved it. She also loves everything chocolatey. Hence chocolate was great addition. It was very moist and flavorful. Thank you for sharing all your no fail recipes.
Thank you for a lovely feedback Sheetu. Kids loving our creation is indeed mission accomplished 🙂
Tried this recipe just now. Amazing output. Super moist and yummy mango chocolate cake. Loved it. Definitely a keeper. Thanks !!
Sounds great Vidula, thank you for a lovely feedback!
If I substitute maida with wheat what will be the variation…? I Plan to make one more of ur yummy fool proof recipes today 🙂
Hey Shivani , increase baking powder to additional 1/4 teaspoon. Add 1 tablespoon more water. Keep mixing to the minimal. Good luck!
Hey! I have a doubt. Which 2-3 tsp of batter will be mixed with melted chocolate? The prepared mango one or a separate chocolate batter?
Amandeep , 3 tablespoon of prepared mango batter to be mixed with melted chocolate to create chocolate batter 🙂
Hi how can we make mango puree .. just by grinding in the mixie??
Is mango puree and pulp the same thing ??
Waiting for your reply!!
Thanks a ton 😊
Yes Hena , it’s the same thing. Thick mango puree homemade or store bought.
Thank you so much Khushboo 🤗😘
You are welcome Hena 🙂
Can we use cocoa fr chocolate layer instead of chocolate chip and milk
Hello Sam. You should be able to use cocoa. Try using 1 teaspoon plus 2 teaspoon sugar and increase liquid for desired consistency if required. .
You are just on baking goddess for me, I have been baking cakes since I was 12 and now I am 34, but it’s not always the same, The inhibition of the cake turning out to be perfect is always there. But with your chocolate cake recipe this inhibition has vanished forever it seems. All thanks to you and your great illustrations. The blog’s specifies all the ifs and buts so clearly that I think any layman cake bake incredibly.
Can’t wait to try the mango cake.
One more thing , the best part about your recipes are it’s eggless with an option of making it vegan.
Kudos to you for posting such amazing proportions in ml/GM’s/ounces/cups making it simple to understand.
I am happy to share Sweta, hence blogging whatever I know. I am glad to have lovely readers like you who try them and grateful to God that the recipes are working for everyone. Thank you for a kind feedback. God Bless!Do try the mango cake , it’s one of our favorites .
Just bake this cake and it is awesome.Thank u for lovely recipe.
You are welcome Savita. Thank you for sending the pictures for the same. The cake looked scrumptious.
Just bake this cake and it is awesome.Thank u for lovely recipe.
Hi Khusboo..Just want to thank you for sharing this recipe. I tried this last night, made them cupcakes instead of a cake, omitted the almonds, and baked them for 20 mins. This is a delicious Eggless Mango Cake, texture is soft and moist. I would definitely make this again but will use fresh mangoes instead of store bought canned mango purée. More power to you!
Thank you Elizabeth for a lovely feedback. The cupcake version sounds great. Many more fruity versions coming up .
just baked this cake and i am digging my teeth into it…yummmyyyy…thanks for the lovely recipe.
your chocolate cup cakes are a big hit in my house and this one will join that list .
i just had one doubt ,,the cake has a crisp upper crust is it suppose to be that way or am i making some mistake.
all the same fantastic cake.
Hey Deepti , the cake crust will soften once cooled , I am happy you are enjoying my bakes 🙂
I have one query?? Can I make a vanilla pound cake using this recipe ?? If yes, wot changes shud I make??
Thank in advance ..
No you can’t Rashmi. All proportions will change. You have to use vanilla cake recipe only. If you are interested, I have one on my blog as eggless vanilla cake recipe.
Can this be made using other (Orange/strawberries/pineapple/kiwi) fruit puree?
Any adjustments to the measures? Most of these are acidic foods hence asked.
You are absolutely right Neelam. Every fruit reacts differently in the batter. Sour foods require more leaveners to work well. You can always experiment. I have tried it with orange and strawberries .Modified this recipe, Added 1 teaspoon baking soda instead of half. 1 cup of puree and 1/4 cup of yogurt. No lemon juice. Hope this helps. I will soon do many tea time cakes.
Hi. Can you please provide the recipe in grams or ounces?
Sorry Vrinda , at present I do not have the measures for the same in grams or ounces. It works well with measuring cups. I will update soon once I make it again.
Hey khushboo ,tried the cake..super awesome. But i didnt get the yellow color as yours..could be the difference of store bought vs home made mango puree( i used) ??
Glad you liked it Anjali. Mango color totally depends of kind of mangoes used. If you don’t have orangish mangoes and concerned about color then you may add few drops of food color too .
Thank you sooo much for this recepie. I always make it a point to try your fail proof recepies as soon as u post them 😉
Will make this one super soon n update u with pics 🙂

Hi Khushboo….I have tried your chocolate ganache recipes which came out so perfect..Thanks a lot for the recipe.
Unfortunately when I tried your mango cake recipe yesterday its didn’t come out properly 🙁 … It was dense and not fluffy….is it because I had put little more mango pure than mentioned in the recipe?I had used fresh mango.
Can you please help me with following doubts:
Do i need to strain the mango puree?
What should be the right temperature if I bake half quantity of this recipe?
Glad to know ganache worked for you. I am sorry that the mango cake did not turn out as expected by you. Let’s work it out . Please follow the recipe measures as given . Please check the raising agents effectiveness too, sometimes they are the culprit. Yes , you need to strain the puree if you suspect there are lumps . Even if you half the quantity , baking temperature remains the same , only the time taken will be less depending on the size of pan too.This recipe is tested by me and my readers several times and everyone gave me a very positive feedback. In fact my baker friend is using it professionally this mango season and sending me lovely feedback. I want to follow this up and make sure this recipe works for you. Do give it a try again and revert.
Hie….can we bake t in microwave
You can bake any cake on microwave mode assuming you know how much time it will need to be baked. I prefer traditional way. If you have baked a cake before on microwave mode, treat this recipe that way and time it accordingly.Though your best bet would be on convection mode.
This is absolutely delicious! I love your cakes and people happen to love mine:). Thanks to you!
I have one request. Can you pleaee post a recipe for eggless banana walnut cake/ muffins. I end up getting them a little too moist and taste uncooked

Can I add small chunks of mango pieces ? Will they sink ?
sure you can add fruit chunks or nuts to any cake batter. Just dust them lightly with a tablespoon of flour and add to the batter so that they do not sink.
This cake looks amazing,…waiting for the mango to make this one…visit my page too
great , thanks! sure will have a look 🙂
