This vegan mango cake is the perfect easy summer cake! It is made with mango puree in the batter but we also add a thick mango swirl and topping so it contains wonderful mango flavor in every bite. YUM!

I love that this vegan bundt cake is straightforward to make with simple ingredients. It has a soft, moist texture and beautiful golden color, and let’s not forget the fragrant mango flavor.

I decided to serve this with a drizzle of mango puree. As mango is quite a delicate flavor I chose to not overpower it with any intense glaze or buttercream. As it is such a moist cake it really doesn’t need any kind of heavy frosting anyway and is perfectly delicious on its own or serve with fresh mango and whipped coconut cream! You can also mix the remaining puree into the coconut cream while whipping for a mango coconut cream frosting.

CAN I MAKE THIS CAKE GLUTEN-FREE?

Yes! To make this a gluten-free mango cake, use 3/4 cup almond flour, 3/4 cup oat flour and 1/3 cup potato starch. Mix and add 1.5 cups of this mixture to the batter to begin with. Add more as needed.

Also use 3/4 cup non dairy milk instead of 1 cup. Once you have a thick, just slightly stiff batter, fold in 1/3 cup club soda into it. Mix the batter lightly to incorporate, then add to a pan and bake

Instructions

  • Make the beater: In a bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix really well until the sugar is mixed in.

  • Then add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl in that order.

  • Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda on top before starting to mix into the liquid in the bowl then mix until you get a smooth cake batter. if it’s too stiff, add in more milk, one teaspoon at a time. If it is too flowy, then add flour one tablespoon at a time until it is smooth but thick batter. Set aside.

  • Make the mango layer; add the mango puree and cornstarch to a skillet over medium heat. Mix really well and continue to cook until the puree has thickened a bit. Depending on the kind of mango puree, this can take anywhere from 2 to 8 minutes. Let the puree cool completely or at least lukewarm.

  • Grease your bundt cake pan (7 inch or similar) or regular cake pan (7 to 9 inch) and then lightly flour it as well. Add the half of batter to the pan and tap the pan so that the batter evens out and there are no bubbles.

  • Then drizzle half of the thickened mango puree over the batter, then the top of it the rest of the batter.

  • Bake at 365°F (185ºC) for 27 to 35 minutes, depending on the bundt cake pan size. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for at least 15 minutes before trying to remove from the pan. Remove the cake from the pan and flip it over if you are using the bundt cake pan.

  • Use the remaining thickened mango puree and drizzle it all over the cake. You can just use a spoon or add the puree to a ziplock bag or piping bag. Decorate the cake as needed.

  • Mango puree: This is a very moist cake. The moisture content depends on the mango puree/mango pulp you are using. I use canned kesar mango pulp. You ca. get it from an Indian store or online on Amazon.
  • If you use bottled, or puree fresh mango, that will have more water content. Cook the mash a few minutes longer so that it thickens a bit and is not too flowy. You can also add 1-3 tbsp sugar to the mango mash if it isn’t sweet enough. Canned mash is usually lightly sweetened but others might need a bit of sweetness
  • For Glutenfree: use 3/4 cup almond flour, 3/4 cup oat flour and 1/3 cup potato starch. Mix and add 1.5 cups of this mixture to the batter to begin with. Add more as needed. Also use 3/4 cup non dairy milk instead of 1 cup. Once you have a thick, just slightly stiff batter, fold in 1/3 cup club soda into it. Mix lightly to incorporate then add to a pan and bake
  • Oilfree: omit the oil and use 2 tablespoons mango puree or applesauce instead
  • Cupcakes: check at 22 mins. Bake 22-25 mins depending on your pan and oven
