I don't dislike eggs ,but its good to experiment without them every once in a while to create a lighter calorie baked goodies.Also,for those with egg allergies(like my mom ) and on restricted diets this(and the previous) eggless bake wouldn't be a let down.
Talk about the star ingredient in the cake - the mangoes.The mango puree not just replaces the eggs but also adds to the sweetness of the cake.The fresh mango slices in every bite would make the cake a true mango indulgence.And of course the chocolaty touch with 100% cocoa powder cannot be substituted with any other ingredient.
Recipe Eggless Mango Chocolate Cake
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup 100% cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder(alum free)
1/3 cup agave nectar or 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup mango puree unsweetened
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup reduced fat milk

Cool cake for 30 minutes and flip on to a plate.Peel off the parchment,slice and serve.Can be refrigerated for a week.
Hard to believe the cherished month of Ramadan is ending soon.Eid marks the celebration of recharged faith.Sweet delicacies of all kinds adorn the eid feasts,the cake would be such a pleasant addition.
Farewell to Ramadan and mangoes......
