  • Preheat oven at 180°C.
  • Wash, peel, cut mangoes into cubes and blend until fine puree. Pour the puree through a sieve. Use fresh and pulpy mangoes. I used Alphonso mangoes.
  • Mix all wet ingredients Oil, Vanilla essence, mango puree, milk in a bowl. Add sugar. Whisk well till sugar dissolves and mixtures becomes fluffy.

  • Divide this mixture into two parts.
  • Take sifted cocoa powder and coffee into a bowl. Add slightly warm water slowly and Mix well into a smooth paste.
  • Add cocoa-coffee mixture into ½ part mango flour mixture. Mix well till it incorporates well with each other.
  • Grease baking pan with oil. Dust it with flour and spread evenly. Pour the ¼ mango flour batter in a greased pan. Drop ¼ cocoa coffee batter on mango flour batter randomly. Using fork or knife draw lines into the batter to get a marble effect.
  • Pour remaining mango flour batter on top. Spread evenly. Drop ¼ cocoa coffee batter randomly and repeat the process.
  • Lightly tap the pan so that batter is spread evenly and there are no air bubbles.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick, it should come out clean. Let the pan sit on the counter for 5 minutes.
  • Flip cake and let it cool on wire rack.
  • Serve with hot tea.
