Mini Mango Cakes With Lime Syrup

With all this temptation, you would be forgiven for skipping your main meal and heading straight for one of these quick and delicious mini mango cakes. Ready in half an hour,  I loved the mango and coconut cake combination plus the hint of lime syrup drizzled on top just before serving it.I used can mango slices here but now that it is mango season down under, I cannot wait to make these mini treats again with some fresh mango slices. These are good for afternoon tea as well and not just for desserts. I really loved the cake-y texture and the hint of coconut flavour and lime in these. Very tropical refreshing!Ingredients

(Serves 4)

Method

1.   Preheat oven to moderately hot 200C degrees. Grease four 1 cup muffin holes and line with two to three mango slices.2.   Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and creamy. Gradually add the egg, beating well after each addition.  Fold in the sifted flour, then add coconut and coconut milk. 3.    Spoon into the muffin holes and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until  a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle.4.   To make the syrup, put the lime juice, extra sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves.  Increase the heat and simmer for 3 minutes, or until thick and syrupy.

5.   Run a knife around the edges of the cakes and turn out. 6.   Drizzle with the lime syrup and sprinkle with lime zest just before serving.
