ABOUT Mango Semolina Cake RECIPE

Healthy & Kid-friendly Cake made using the “King of Fruits” – Mango!! This cake is extremely soft & moist and simply melts in your mouth. Moreover, this cake is healthier as compared to the other cakes as it is made of semolina aka sooji and uses very less oil. Since this cake does not have refined flour, it is very good for kids as well. The recipe for this cake is taken from a dear friend Kaveri Obhan’s blog, “Pretty Little Things”.

Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. Semolina/Sooji 1 cup
  2. Mango pulp 1 cup
  3. Neutral oil 1/4 cup
  4. Powdered Sugar 3/4 cup
  5. Baking powder 1 teaspoon
  6. Ground cardamom (optional)1/2 teaspoon
  7. Chopped nuts of your choice for garnish (optional) (I used almonds and pistachios) 1/4 cup


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix the semolina with sugar, cardamom and baking powder.
  3. Next, add oil and mix well. Finally add the mango pulp and mix again. Let it sit for 15 – 20 minutes so that sooji absorbs the mango pulp and the batter gets little thick.
  4. Pour the batter in a greased cake tin and garnish with nuts of your choice.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. Keep a close watch after 25 minutes, if it starts browning too quickly, lower the temperature a bit or switch off the top element of the cake.
  6. Check with a toothpick in the center of the cake to see if properly baked. If it comes out clean then remove immediately. If it is kept for a longer time, the cake will develop a crust on the top.
  7. Allow to cool completely and then cut and serve.
