LAB X KITCHEN THERAPY X THE KITCHEN TRAIL

‘Tis almost the holiday season, and while most of us in this industry are severely overworked but also learning so much, taking notes for the next year and generally looking to broaden horizons. This week is the last strenuous stretch before I take off on a quick break, and this recipe is the perfect anticipatory bake for the season:

The Mango Coconut Cake will remind you of tropical lands, the sea and a pina colada! Devised for the first Afternoon Tea menu at Le Artisan Boulangerie, when mangoes were abundant in season, this slice was my attempt to bring the beach to the mind while slogging away at work! Every Gujarati household stores tubs of mango ras for the months after, used carefully and defrosted only for special occasions. For me, I believe every day is special, so no use in freezing anything! This is the best way to use up the luscious mangoes in this cake, and the elderly generation will adore you for this one!
