Fruits & Nuts Mango Cake with Homemade Yellow Cake mix

Its been a while i posted fruits loaded cake, especially with mango. Since i want to finish some leftover mango pulp, i baked this beautiful cake with loads of fruits and nuts. Actually am running this week's blogging marathon with an interesting theme 'Readymade Produce - make at home'. Earlier, actually before blogging, i will always go for store bought cake mix, as they were quite easy to whisk and bake the cake.Then later, once i came to know more about baking cakes at home, i have completely dropped buying those ready-made products even though they are easily available.. Its always good to make cake mix at home by ourselves rite, we know what we have put in our cake batter, hence we can feed our family easily with our own bakes.

You can still use this cake mix to make the usual yellow cake which is definitely an easiest cake to bake.Stay tuned, i will be sharing two more interesting home-made products available easily in provisional stores.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#52.

I love the texture of your cake, I also make cakes from scratch and I guess making the mix before hand will come in handy. Nice recipe. Jayanthi(
