Mango Chocolate Marble / Bundt Cake - Eggless & Butterless Version

Hi friends, here is my  Mango Chocolate Marble Cake recipe for Home Baker's Challenge, administered by Priya.

This month Mrs .Sangeetha Vijay  is hosting the event and she has selected Mango Chocolate Marble Cake as a challenge. Though she had suggested both egg and egg less version; I preferred to bake the healthier version (egg less and butter less) which came out so soft, moist and delicious.

Thanks to Priya Suresh for starting the group and Sangeetha  Vijay for hosting this month's event and challenge. To know more about Home Baker's Challenge click here


All Purpose flour - 2 cups
Baking powder, 1
½ tsp
Baking soda -  ½ tsp
Salt - ½  tsp
Sugar -    ½ cup (powdered)
Olive oil  - ¼ cup
Mango Pulp - 1 cup (I used store bought mango pulp)
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Yogurt -  
¼  cup
Milk -  ¼ cup
Cocoa powder - 3 tbsp
Warm water - 2 tbsp


Preheat oven to 180 deg C and prepare your bundt tin (grease with butter / oil and dust it with all purpose flour); keep aside.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and keep aside.

In a separate bowl add oil, yogurt, milk, mango pulp and powdered sugar;  blend until it is mixed well. 

 Mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and beat on medium speed until mixed thoroughly. 

Now take a small bowl, add cocoa powder & 2 tbsp warm water and mix well. Keep aside.

Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir the cocoa paste into the mixture in one of the bowls. 

Place the batters into the prepared bundt pan by alternating spoonfuls of vanilla batter with the chocolate batter. 

Take a skewer and gently draw swirls through the batter to create a marbled effect.  Don't over mix.

Pour batter into the greased bundt  tin and bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 35 to 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a cake comes out clean (temperature may vary for different ovens).

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. 

Once it is cooled completely, remove loaf bread / cake from the pan to slice and serve; or drizzle with chocolate glaze to satisfy your chocolate craving.

For preparing Chocolate Glaze (Optional)


Cocoa Powder - 1  tbsp
Butter - 1 tbsp
Icing sugar -  
 ½ cup
Warm water - 2 to 3 tbsp (adjust according to the desired consistency)
Vanilla essence - ½  tsp


In a bowl, mix sugar, butter and cocoa powder.  

Using a fork, gradually stir in the water until the mixture is smooth and glossy without any lumps. 

Now, stir in the vanilla essence. 

Keep covered with plastic wrap until you use it so that the glaze doesn't get hard.
