Servings 1 8 inch round


  • 1 cup Sorghum flour (jowar)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 medium mangoes peeled and pulped
  • 3/4 cup raw cane sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 pod vanilla (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the sweet lime glaze

  • 1/3 cup sweet lime juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp sweet lime zest


  • Pre heat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a 8 inch round pan. I used a ring pan and 4 mini bundtt pans.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand mixer whisk together oil and sugar for 2-3 minutes till light and fluffy. You could use butter too here
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat till well mixed. Add the mango pulp along with vanilla seeds/extract and beat further for 30 seconds till mixed
  • Mix all the dry ingredients namely - flours, salt, baking powder and chia seeds.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients in the wet gently in three batches
  • Pour in prepared pan and bake at 180 C for 25-40 minutes depending on the pan you are using. A ring or bundtt will bake faster than the round pan. For testing if the cake is done, insert a toothpick and it should come out clean. Let it cool slightly before removing it from the tin.
  • While the cake is cooling. Whisk together sweet lime juice and icing sugar well till dissolved and thick. Add the zest mix and set aside.
  • Unmould the cake and pour a generous amount of glaze on top. Sprinkle some more zest if you like. Slice and enjoy with a cup of tea!
