Mango Torte Cake
It’s almost a year and three months I have posted anything on my blog. The blog was completely ignored. The traffic was sluggish. But I was using it as an online cookbook for referring my old recipes. So many things took priority over blogging and I had to ignore it for a while.
Our firstborn, Nathan started his first year of college now.Luckily, his college is not that far away from home, so we pick him up on the weekends. The other two seems to be very quiet without him and our home cheers up when he is home on the weekend. I feel excited to cook something special for him when he comes. My daughter thinks he is treated as a guest now..lol.
All these months when I was not blogging, my kids and husband kept motivating me to blog.He even started telling his co-workers to check out my blog for recipes. Many of my friends and relatives inquired about the blog. Since I was re-posting all the memories on fb, some thought I was still blogging. I knew that I had to rekindle the fire of cooking passion and blogging somehow. to find some time for the things I am passionate about. The mundane routines had to be adjusted and I have to find sometime for myself. jotting down few words for this post....
So here comes the first recipe of 2020....a Mango Torte Cake.For Nicole’s birthday we decided to go with a fruity tropical flavor to get some summer feel in the winter. I baked 2 Mango Torte cakes to celebrate her birthday at the church. They were small 2 cakes, so there was no leftover and I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures. Nathan is the huge critic of my food in our house. After enjoying the cake at church he came to me and told me “Its a keeper Mom!”. So I decided to bake a loaf size cake just for us to enjoy and click few pictures. It was easy to make and assemble. The decoration may not look that good, but it tasted truly tropical which was much needed for this bone chilling weather. Hope you will give it a try and let me know.
