A delicious moist vegan cake. The addition of pureed mango and thick dairy free yogurt creates a wonderful sweetness and richness without the need for eggs. So not only is it gluten free it is also suitable for vegans.

I drizzled over some orange syrup and served it with coconut yogurt for a fabulous dessert.

  4. Transfer the cake batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean in the centre of the cake.
  5. Allow the cake to cool in the tin completely
