We are starting the final and fourth week of BM#53. I will be posting all Kid Friendly Dishes themed on Fruits all the way.
As per the rules, all the dishes made for my event will have to be kid friendly and kid approved. It could be any age group. Mostly I try making dishes that are approved by all three of them. However my boys are very choicy and selective. If its chocolate, pizzas they are fine, else they are not very fond.
So its been mostly my daughter who approves a dish for this theme. She has been doing it since I started this event. The next three dishes are something she enjoyed and especially today's mango cake was her favorite.
Kids Delight this month is hosted by Harini, who is calling for ideas on using fruits in the dishes. I had a tough time thinking what I could make as when I thought of cakes, only chocolate comes to mind. Then with Banana, I have couple of combinations.
With the seasonal special fruit still being in season, I decided to use that. I love tea cake and this cake has the same texture, soft, crumbly and not sticky at all. I was hesitant if I could store this in room temperature for long. It was good in our hot climate at room temperature for 3 days.
Konda started her 10th grade and has long school hours. I have been wanting to pack filling snacks for her evenings. she was very happy to carry these mango cake for her evening snacks. That made me look out for more such options. And I also decided that I should have a section that caters only to those foods that can be packed and stay good for over 8 hrs. So watch out for that!
Coming back to the cake, I can't stop talking enough about it as it was just the right sweetness, crumbly and soft and very filling. The mango taste is not very overpowering. I could have increased a bit, however I felt it was ok to have a neutral tasting cake. And yes before I forgot this cake was loved by the boys as well. I sent it for their snacks as well.
I know I might be going on and on, let me give you a slice!
