My husband made this and it came out delicious! It was fairly easy and I added a sprinkle of cinammon for an extra kick! I've tried the real deal in Mexico and this is extremely close...delicious!!!
Thanks for the recipe!
I followed these instructions step-by-step, except for the icing. I used 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, one package of cream cheese, 1cup of granulated sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I beat the whipping cream into stiff peaks and in another bowl combined cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Then I mixed the two together and spread liberally on top of my cake. This recipe was a big hit with my whole family.
Simply said, evaporated milk is condensed milk without sugar added to it. You can make it on your own by simmering down about 2 1/4 cups of regular milk down until it becomes 1 cup. This 1 cup is evaporated milk. I posted your query in my Facebook Chefinyou Page : https://www.facebook.com/ChefInYou/posts/10152089662570297 where some members have replied with locations to its availability. Pls see if it helps. --DK
PLs refer to Neha Soraiyur's comment for my answer regarding evaporated milk. I used the essence/extract --DK
This is the first time I am even hearing of a transparent mango! Will update my reply if I get to know anything about it though. (And sure would luv to know about it if you get to know too:))
I think it wud be hard for this type of cake since I dont think it has the strong base to hold up the weight of tiered cakes. But I wudnt know better. I think the best option would be for you is to try one of this - chk the texture and see if you think it will hold up!
Its hard for me to pinpoint a reason since I was not there to see what you did. But were you able to follow each and every instruction like I showed in the steps? r u sure u did skip anything? If you beat your eggs properly so that they formed nice peaks and then folded in softly in the batter, your cake should have puffed up. The milk mixture should have made for that smell and taste....I cant think of anything else... (also do chk if your Baking soda has not expired)--DK
Yeah take it easy on yourself. That should be totally OK :) --DK
Oh yes! Have to agree! Its amazing!--DK
Technically there isnt an eggless version of this classic but I am thinking if I can cheat it with some store bought ready made cake mixes! Lemme try that version - will update it :) --DK
Thank you so much Leena :) Glad to hear that :) --DK
