The Ingredients that go into my eggless mango cake with white chocolate ermine frosting Why?

  1. All-purpose flour:
    • Function: Provides the structure and base for the cake. It’s the main dry ingredient that forms the bulk of the cake batter.
  2. Baking powder:
    • Function: A leavening agent that helps the cake rise by creating air bubbles in the batter. It ensures the cake is light and fluffy.
  3. Baking soda:
    • Function: Another leavening agent that works alongside baking powder to help the cake rise. It reacts with the acidic components in the batter (like the mango puree and condensed milk) to create carbon dioxide bubbles, making the cake tender.
  4. Butter (melted):
    • Function: Adds richness, moisture, and flavor to the cake. The fat in the butter helps create a tender crumb.
  5. Sugar:
    • Function: Sweetens the cake and helps tenderize the batter by absorbing moisture. It also contributes to the cake’s browning during baking.
  6. Mango puree:
    • Function: Provides the primary flavor of the cake, adding a tropical and fruity taste. It also contributes moisture and natural sweetness.
  7. Milk:
    • Function: Adds moisture to the cake, helping to combine the dry ingredients smoothly. It also contributes to the cake’s tenderness.
  8. Mango essence:
    • Function: Enhances the mango flavor in the cake, ensuring a strong mango taste even if the puree’s flavor isn’t very intense.
  9. Condensed milk:
    • Function: Adds sweetness, moisture, and a slightly creamy texture to the cake. It also helps in binding the ingredients together, compensating for the lack of eggs.
  10. Yellow food color (optional):
    • Function: Adds a vibrant yellow hue to the cake, making it visually appealing and enhancing the perception of mango flavor. This is optional and does not affect the taste or texture of the cake.
  11. Mango Juice to soak the cake so that the cake is moist and flavourful.

These ingredients work together to create a moist, flavorful, and tender eggless mango cake that captures the essence of fresh mangoes

White chocolate ermine frosting is a unique and delicious type of frosting known for its creamy, smooth texture and balanced sweetness. It is a cooked frosting that begins with a roux base made from flour and milk, which is then combined with butter, sugar, and melted white chocolate. This frosting is often praised for being less sweet than traditional buttercreams while still providing a rich, buttery flavor enhanced by the subtle, sweet notes of white chocolate which has a specific function that contributes to its texture, flavor, and stability. Here’s why each ingredient is essential:

  1. Milk:
    • Function: Acts as the base liquid in the frosting. It helps dissolve the flour and sugar, and later on, it creates a creamy base that will combine with the butter to form a smooth frosting.
  2. All-purpose flour:
    • Function: Thickens the milk mixture when cooked, creating a roux or paste. This thickened mixture forms the base of the frosting, giving it a stable structure that holds its shape well when mixed with butter.
  3. Vanilla:
    • Function: Adds flavor and aroma to the frosting. Vanilla enhances the overall taste, complementing the sweetness of the white chocolate and the creaminess of the butter.
  4. Salt (a pinch):
    • Function: Balances the sweetness and enhances the flavors in the frosting. Even a small amount of salt can significantly improve the taste by bringing out the other flavors.
  5. Butter:
    • Function: Adds richness, creaminess, and stability to the frosting. When whipped, butter becomes fluffy and light, contributing to the smooth and airy texture of the frosting.
  6. White chocolate:
    • Function: Provides sweetness and a rich, creamy flavor to the frosting. Melted white chocolate also adds a smooth texture and helps stabilize the frosting once it cools and sets.
  7. Sugar:
    • Function: Sweetens the frosting. It is cooked with flour and milk to create a smooth, thick base, which later combines with the butter to make the frosting light and fluffy.
