5 egg white
100g castor sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Cotton Cake
1) Preheat oven 150C.. grease and line ur 7 baking pan.. wrap bottom of ur baking pan with aluminium.
2) Heat butter and milk till warmish.. do not let it boil ok.. switch off heat and add in sifted flour and corn flour.. mix using wooden spatula.
3) Transfer to a bigger bowl and add in ur eggs.. continue to mix till smooth.
4) In another bowl.. whisk egg white till frothy.. add in salt and add in sugar in 3 addition.. whisk till soft peak
5) Pour 1/3 of egg white mixture into ur egg/butter mixture.. fold in gently.. pour the rest and continue to mix gently.. (same manner as when ur baking chiffon cake.. cotton cheesecake)
6) Pour batter into baking pan and bake it au bain marie method for abt 45 mins.
7) Let the cake cool and slice horizontally 2 slices and trim them into 6 x 6 inch square.

Mango Mousse
1) In a mixing bowl, whip whipping cream with icing sugar to soft peak state. Refrigerate to chill.
2) In a small bowl, dissolve gelatine in hot water. When the gelatine is fully dissolved, add to mango puree. Mix well.
3) Add the mango mixture to whipped cream. Mix well until incorporated.
4) Use a 7 x 7 inch cake ring, place a layer of cake and pour in mango mousse, or use a large piping tip to pipe the mixture. Do take note of the corners. Add mango cubes and cover them with some mousse. Let it slighty set for about 10 minutes in the fridge.
5) Lay another cake layer and pour the remaining mousse. Let it set for 30 to 45 minutes in the fridge.

Mango Glaze
1) Dissolve gelatine in hot water. Mix in mango puree. Wait till the mousse is set and the topping is cooled, arrange sliced fruits, if using, pour in the topping carefully. Let the cake chill for at least 3 hours before removing the cake ring.

Hi Rima,

Your cake always looks so delicious! Really wanna try to bake this cake ;).

How did you make mango puree? Do I have to add sugar if I make my own mango puree for this recipe? because I can't find the ready use mango puree in my city. Thanks.

Hi Rima,

Hello Rima, interesting post.
Long ago, I too MIA almost 3 or 4 days in a week. My wife was a business widow. Not sure which is worst, golf widow atau business, ha ha.
My children treated me more like an uncle than a father.

But my wife knew sebelum kawain, I laid out all my cards let her know my kind of work. And if she still gila nak kawain, begitu la.
But today, I manjah her make up for lost time.

I love your cake....ini la masuk satu spoon dalam mulut boleh lupa nama mak, ha ha ha.
I can see you have a black belt in baking.
Love the colours, and the texture so smooth.
There is nothing more spectacular on this planet than that of a beautiful wife or mother in the act of cooking or baking for her loved ones.

Have a great week, remember, absence makes the love grow fonder, and on his return, itu la dia...*wink*.
And keep a song in your heart.
Best regards.
Lee. (Canada).
