Swirl cakes are so pretty and pleasing to the eye. Initially I wanted to bake a mango cake but finally decided to include our other two favorite flavors – Chocolate and Vanilla. I was imagining how it would taste with three strong flavors and then finalized on baking it because it would triple our joy! Besides, you can enjoy this combination throughout the year as canned mangoes and frozen pulp is always easily available.
Above all, tomorrow is the 3rd Anniversary of my blog “Hilda’s Touch of Spice” and this beautiful and delicious triple bonanza is just right to celebrate with. A fresh mango pulp swirl cake is apt to another fresh year of blogging with love and enthusiasm. The fragrance of sweet vanilla, the irresistible taste of chocolate and delectable magic of fresh Alphonso mango is what this gorgeous swirl cake is all about. Slice to reveal the pattern and every slice will be a beauty! 😀
So let’s celebrate together and enjoy this super soft Mango – Choco – Vanilla Triple Swirl Bundt Cake! Cheers & Enjoy!! 😀
