Pancake Posted June 16, 2013 Report Share Posted June 16, 2013 For The Cake: Non-Stick Cooking Spray1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 cup sugar (I use Coconut Sugar, which is 1:1 ratio with regular sugar)2 eggs1 tsp. vanilla (imitation will suffice, but investing in real vanilla extract is always a good thing!) 2 cups flour1 tsp baking powder1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt3 Tbsp. Chia seeds 1 cup plain Greek Yoghurt2 mangoes, diced (2 cups, roughly)3 Tbps diced, candied ginger For The Glaze: 3/4 cup Confectioners' Sugar 2 Tbps orange juice1 Tbps melted butter Directions: 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (Gas Mark: 4, for you EU/UK/AU people). Lightly spray a bundt cake pan with the Non-stick cooking spray (set it to the side). 2: In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chia seeds) and whisk them together. 3: In another medium bowl, blend the oil and sugar together. Then, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. 4: Mix the dry ingredients into the egg mixture you've just created, little bits at a time; alternate with the Greek yoghurt. 5: Carefully fold in the mango and ginger, then pour the batter into the cake pan. 6: Bake at 350°F (Gas Mark: 4) for 25-35 minutes. Check with a toothpick, if you can poke a toothpick into the centre of the pan and it comes out clean - it's finished! 7: Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool (5-10 minutes should be enough)8: Place your hand over the cake and flip it over to remove it from the pan, allow it to cool entirely on a wire rack (preferably) 9: In a small bowl, mix together the Confectioners' sugar, 1 Tbsp of the melted butter, and the orange juice. Blend until smooth. If you wish for a thicker glaze, add more of the Confectioners' sugar, a little at a time (to make sure it doesn't end up TOO thick..). 10: Once the cake is completely cooled, drizzle the glaze over it. This is actually a really good cake (of course, as I'm partial to mangoes!). Chia seeds are great for energy; just be careful not to eat too many of them at once.
