Soft Mango Yogurt Ogura Cake #14

Soft and Light Mango Yogurt Ogura Cake for my collection of Ogura Cakes series................  my no 14 Ogura cakes.
Please refer here for my other Ogura Cakes posts!

 It tastes heavenly!

  The cake turned out perfect even though I did not over turn the cake after taking out from the oven. 
I did not trimmed the edges of the cake as its quite satisfactory.  Only thing I was wondering what is the course of the wrinkles on top of the cake compare to my previous Ogura Cakes.   Anyone knows??

The mango Yogurt I used

  1. Hi Christine, this is so so ho jiak!!!! So tempting.... coming over now! Will bring coffee as buah tangan, hahahha

  2. Can I hav a slice ?
    Look very soft n moist!

    1. Hi Wendy, Of course u can! Kawan mah! But for now is feast for yr eyes only.... ^_^

  3. Wah, Christine you won all paid trip, so nice! Eh, thanks for the mention! Yah we are Ogura cake lovers hah! hah! The wrinkles could it be because you did not overturn the cake? I think I kena wrinkly top before when I did not overturn the cake.

    1. PH, Yahlo, so lucky I, hehe.... Thank you for the tips on the course of the wrinkles....

  4. Hi Christine, hand-made baking pans are good to get neat edges. Your Ogura cakes are lovely. This post reminds me that I haven't bake Ogura cakes with yoghurt for quite awhile. There are so many flavours to try.

  5. Thanks for sharing. I love ogura cake so much. I tried few times but my success rate only 50%. Almost every alternate try failed snd i am yet to figure out why ( im new in cake baking). It shrink when half way through the baking in oven, or shrink when it is almost done or right after taking out from oven. Any idea why so?

  6. Hi Mag, did you 'steam bake' the cake? Steam Bake is different from water bath. You may refer my Coffee Ogura Cake for details. Steam bake is to place a tray of water on the lower rack, place a wire rack in the middle and place the cake bake on the wire rack to bake the cake. Hope this will help you!

  7. Hi Christine, I have baked ogura cakes multiple times with different flavors (using your recipe, of course! hahahah) but somehow, the bottom of my cakes turned our kind of wet. I tried taking the water bath out 10mins before the cake is done, but doing so cracked the top of my cake. Also, my cakes always sunk whenever i took it out from the oven. Any suggestion to get an ogura cake as fluffy as yours please?

    1. Cherish, it could be the temperature of yr oven try adjust the temperature slightly higher, cover the cake with foil after say 10 mins of baking for 20 mins or so to prevent the top get burned

  8. Cont the baking till done! Hope tis will help u dear friend

    1. Thanks for responding, Christine! <3 I am re-doing this cake again tomorrow with your suggestion. Hopefully, it comes out good!!!

    2. Tried ogura cake again today. I adjusted my oven to 170C (10C hotter than I used to bake because my oven is hotter than other people's). My cake still turns out quite wet. Really would like to show you my cake with the pictures but I dont know how can I attach it to you, Christine! ='(

  9. Hi cherish, u can add me as FB fren or email! I am happy to be yr friend!

    1. Just found you on fb! Please add me, Christine! Thanks!
