Mango Pound Cake

Mango Pound Cake

Mango Pound Cake ala Patti Jinich

Claire loves all things mango.  Dried, fresh, frozen, in a Lassi or smoothie, salsa on fish, you name it.  She loves it.

On Saturday we were watching Patti Jinich, host of Patti’s Mexican Table on KQED.  We love her because she’s so enthusiastic and passionate about food, specifically Mexican food.  In the episode we were watching she made a mango pound cake.  What makes this recipe so interesting is that mango is pureed with buttermilk and added as the wet ingredient.  Of course we make banana bread, and applesauce cake, so why not bake with a mango puree?  Because of mango’s orange color the cake bakes up very golden and has a delicate almond flavor with a touch of fruity after taste.  We enjoyed it with softly whipped cream and raspberries, but I say guild the lily and serve it with fresh mango slices.  Unadorned it’s a great snack cake or breakfast cake.
