                                                  Mango shortcakes

This is the season for mangoes and our city in known as mango city.we have lots of mango trees around us and love the sweetness and taste of mangoes.This recipe is actually not a cake recipe its like a crusty round biscuit stuffed with fresh cream and seasonal fruits like sandwich.Actual recipe contains berries and I used mangoes,it is really awesome taste me and my kids love it....................

It makes 10 short cakes and we can cut them into half and stuff the filling,mine was very small and I used 2 shortcakes to make a sandwich.My cream filling is not only with freshcream but also I used vanilla custard  with pink color to enhance its taste.There is no use of butter in this recipe just to coat the cakes.The yummy shortcake filled with pink vanilla custard cream and the yellow mangoes.............

WOW..................It is a delicious combination to kindle our tastes buds.....................

I made this recipe for swathi's Baking partners group on fb suggested by Reeni.
