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.

Mango Cake

Ingredients:-

For Cake:

Cracked Wheat cooked until water is absorbed- 3/4 cup
Egg whites – Of 3 large eggs
Granulated Sugar – 1/2 cup
Unsalted Butter(In room temperature) – 1 stick
Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
Baking Powder – 1 tsp
Mango Pulp – 1 cup
Almonds chopped – 1 tbsp

For Mango Sauce :

Mango Pulp – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 3 tbsp
Water – 3 tbsp

Method:-

Preparing the Cake :

Beat together egg whites and sugar untill it gets fluffy.Add rest of the ingredients and mix well.Preheat oven to 350 degrees and pour the cake mixture into a greased pan.Bake it for approx 30 min or until a tooth pick inserted at the centre comes out clean.Allow it to cool well,cut into squares and serve with mango sauce.

Preparing Mango Sauce :

Heat sugar and water in a pan until the sugar is melted,add mango pulp into it,mix well and switch off the heat.Allow it to sit for few minutes.Mango sauce is ready to be served.Pour a spoon full of sauce over the cake piece,decorate with almonds and serve.

Note :Krishnarjuna suggests ricotta cheese or yogurt instead of butter for a lower fat version.

    Hi Anitha
    I tried this today.It tasted good.I cooked cracked wheat with just 3/4 cup of water.So it didnt get cooked enough.May be because of that the batter looked too watery and cake had a texture of somewhat between cake and pudding.Is that how it should be.Anyway it tasted great.Thanks for the recipe.

    can we replace the egg whites with something else for vegetarians like me…?

  19. Divya said

    I tried. But the consistency was not like a cake. I think the batter was too watery. Is it because the wheat was overcooked? what is ratio to cook cracked wheat?
