This Mango Marble cake has the goodness of both mango and chocolate. I made muffins with this combination several years ago but didn’t bake with mango in the last few years even though I have an abundance of fresh mangoes every season.

I was walking with a couple of friends and one of the friends mentioned that she wanted to taste the Mango Chocolate combo.

I looked out for recipes and found a Mango Chocolate Marble Cake recipe on posted by friend Usha on Myspicykitchen. I made few modifications to suit my kids tastebuds and the cake turned out delicious.
