Cracked Wheat Mango Cake
Posted by Annita on September 7, 2007
Here’s another recipe which i’ve tried out recently.I found this in Krishna & Arjuna’s World and this seems very innovative and interesting to me.Somehow I messed up my first attempt and cracked wheat didn’t cook well . So next time I didn’t want to take a risk and so precooked the wheat before mixing it with the other ingredients.The cake came out pretty well and i loved every single bite of it especially with that mango sauce as a topping.
Thanks again to Krishna & Arjuna.
