Put a taste of the tropics into your next cake with this moist and flavourful mango and lemon loaf cake. For optimum results, use well ripe mangoes and unwaxed, organic lemons.
Avoid opening the oven door in the first 50 minutes of cooking as this will help to prevent the cake sinking in the middle.
I was looking for something with a different flavour and simple to make. This cake was lovely, fresh and flavourful and the lemon and mango compliment each other well. However, the cooking time given of 60 to 70 minutes was far too long. My oven heat is accurate but by 40 minutes at 190c I had to take it out as it was getting too dark. Still nice and edible though. I made it again in a different loaf pan, lowered the heat to 180c but it was still well cooked by 45 minutes. This cake is definitely going to be one of my 'regulars', but with the shorter cooking time. - 11 Dec 2017
