That s why, i went to town to make this lusciously gorgeous mango bundt cake. This cake is quite unlike your regular cakes. It s a little dense and syrupy thanks to all that lemon glaze. But boy!! you will love every bit of it. Doesn’t matter if you are a mango hater. You will love it anyway. Oh, did i mention the cardamom and the ginger that goes into it? Well, it may seem like a weird thing to throw in cardamom and ginger with mango, but please believe me when cardamom and ginger are like cheese and ketchup to sammiches.

Preheat oven to 180 C for 10 mins.
Grease a 10″ bundt pan generously and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients together.
Wondering what the light brown thing in the pic is? Its dry ground ginger.
