Right then, if you have read any of my other posts you can probably tell I like to be a bit adventurous when it comes to flavour combinations! So ive got Bangra Burgers on for lunch and wanted to carry on the indian inspired theme, what do you chuck on for dessert? Rice pudding? A traditional indian dessert like kulfi or gulab jamun? Not me! Cardamom and Mango Cake! Very tasty! Heres how I did it.
Made a normal sponge ( see previous recipe )
In a pan on the hob heat equal water to sugar and lob in 5 or 6 cardamom pods. I used green ones.
Bring it to the boil and reduce to a syrup.
Set aside to cool.
Turn out your sponge and make little holes with a cocktail stick all over.
Tip over you syrup.
Arrange on your desired plate and garnish with mango coulis.
At the school its all about getting the students to try new things and flavours. Always handy if you csn make it work in a cake!!
