Rich, tender, and delicious, this summer season, it’s time to prepare the Pound cake with luscious Mango and you would ask for more. Absolutely delectable showstopper and it’s so easy to prepare with fewer ingredients, this is one dessert , you definitely need to try if you love the succulent Mangoes.

I am sure we all love pound cake, so what’s better than pound cake? Cream cheese pound cake?? Absolutely yes!!, what makes it even better, is the presence of sweet mouth watering Mangoes. Pound cakes generally do not require any glaze and can be served as-is , however, this time, I have topped it with Mango cream cheese glaze and the taste was quite divine. You can skip the glaze if required but I would recommend it as I found it totally fab!

Pound cake is a traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. Since I wanted to make this cake without eggs, I have tried this using condensed milk/yogurt as egg replacer and both taste equally good. This time, I wanted to do it with yogurt so here is my successful experiment below

Generally eggs give better rise and fluffier texture so with eggless cakes, leavening agents definitely play an important role so do not skip them. What makes this cake more interesting is the presence of cream cheese, which gives you nice silky smooth texture to the glaze and the cake. Unlike regular pound cake, cream cheese cakes will have slightly denser texture and rich taste

While demolding the cake from this designer bundt pan, I had little bit stuck to the pan hence the cake didn’t look as beautiful as I expected, but, still happy with the outcome.

Since I am a big fan of Mango, I have a good collection of mango recipes on my blog. You can check out my Mango recipes collection so far, by clicking on the link below:
