My First Try: Mango Graham Cake

August 22, 2018

If you read some of my blog posts here, you already know that I am not a fan of cooking. But recently, I got the urge to learn. Tanong sa kin ng asawa ko, "Bakit mo biglang naisipan?"Well, honestly, I don't know. I just feel like doing it this time. 

So eto na nga, since beginner lang naman ako with this thing, I am just trying to do those simple recipes muna and I think Mango Graham Cake is one of those na kayang-kaya ng mga noob sa cooking just like me.

Mango Graham Cake
My peg:

Image c/o Kawaling Pinoy


2 diced mangoes (ctto)

Miscellaneous items:
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Pan where you will put your finished product
  • Mixer
Procedure (c/o Kawaling Pinoy):
  1. Make sure that the cream and the condensed milk are chilled and very cold.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream and the condensed milk. 
  3. Using a mixer, whip mixture until it reaches firm peaks
  4. Gently fold in 1/2 of the diced mangoes, making sure not to deflate the whipped cream.
  5. Arrange one layer of graham crackers on bottom of prepared dish. Spoon 1/3 of cream mixture on crackers and spread to cover. Repeat this 2x.
  6. Arrange the remaining diced mangoes on top of the cream.
  7. Cover tightly the container and refrigerate overnight.
The verdict:

My output 😉

Medyo naexpectation vs. reality ako sa looks but for the taste, it was delicious. Tamang-tama lang ang tamis. Maybe because the cream that I used was not very cold so it lacked the heavy texture which caused the mixture to stay watery kahit 20 minutes ko nang nawhip. At least now I know how can I improve my graham cake.

How about you? Do you also have some "expectation vs reality" experiences in cooking? Hope you can share them also.
