Swisscake3

Mango Swiss Cake!!!! lot of you must be wondering what this cake is all about. I am not even sure if a Swiss cake really exist ;) May be I was the one who invented it!!! :P

The intended Mango Swiss roll gave me a heart break but then it only ended up as a cuter looking cake :)

Method:

Sieve all purpose flour and corn flour together and keep it aside.

Add eggs and sugar to a large beating bowl and beat till it becomes a thick paste. When the beater is lifted it should leave a trail for at least few seconds.

Now beat in the flour mixture in two batches. Finally add the hot water and vanilla essence and beat for a min.

Preheat oven to 390°F or 200°C.

Line the baking pan (9" by 6") with grease proof paper and brush with some butter.

Pour the batter upto 3/4th of the pan and bake it for 10-12 mins at 390°F or 200°C. Adjust the time according to your oven settings.

Check if cooked by inserting a skewer in the center. Once done, allow it to cool on a wire rack for a while. Once cooled, sprinkle some caster sugar over it.

Chop mango into fine bits.

Slice the cake into squares and spread some whipped cream on top and decorate generously with chopped mango pieces.

Mango Swiss cake is ready to serve :)

Enjoy eating :)

Tips:

If you want to make Swiss roll cake pour a thin layer of batter in a larger pan (11 inches by 9 inches) and bake the cake.

Spread a kitchen towel on the workspace and sprinkle some caster sugar over it. Turn over the cake on the towel and peal the grease proof sheet.

Now carefully roll it along with the towel and allow it to cool.

Once it comes to room temp, unwind it, spread the cream and chopped mangoes and roll it neatly and put it in the refrigerator for an hour. Slice and serve :)

Note:

Since we have used fresh mangoes for the topping, its best to finish it up in a day or two max.

Enjoy the yummy treat!!!! :)
