This is a GREAT cake. I made it today for my cousins and aunts back home in India(my dad's gonna carry it there for them tonight). I had to offer some to the unexpected guests who toppled over, they LOVED IT. Said, they felt like humming after eating it. I omitted the cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter that form a part of the icing in this recipe. Instead, I used all the ingredients mentioned under "For cake" and in addition to that, I used 1 mango(made its puree in the blender) and an additional tsp. of vanilla essence in the cake mixture. I also omitted the pineapples as I didnt have the tin unfortunately. Instead, I added a tsp. of pineapple essence to my cake mixture ingredients. It was a great cake. Loved it. Thanks a tonne!

I made this for my friends at work and everyone raved about how moist and delicious it was. Would make a great addition to a holiday table. I didn't have 8" cake pans so used 2 10" and it worked out just fine and gave me more slices. I also added finely chopped pecans to the batter and to decorate the top and sides of the finished cake.

Wow I got rave reviews for this! Serious humming all round the table. I used three 7 inch tins, and had to crush a tin of pineapple pieces (in their juice) due to lack of crushed pinapple in the supermarket here. Threw in a cup of chopped pecans, and just did a straight cream cheese icing instead of mango, sprinkling crushed pecans on top. Is good enough to use as a dessert cake at a dinner party. YUM.
