Mango Chiffon cake

Its Nov again and it will be my father-in-law's and husband's birthday.  We will celebrate father's birthday in Kuala Lumpur in my sister-in-law's house. I bake a butter cake with basket weaving decoration, for my husband I decided to bake a mango cake which I never done it before.  I searched for mango cake recipe a few days before hand.  Finally I found 1 recipe from my old recipe book.  The mangoes the recipe recommended was just the normal mangoes.  I wanted to try with some mangoes with strong fragrant e.i (kunning).  I managed to buy 5 such mangoes from the morning market, really strong smell.  I like it.
 The ingredients is as follow:

for the cake
6 egg yolks
1/2cup caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup corn oil
175g super fine flour
2 tsps baking powder
6 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup of caster sugar
for the filling
2 mangoes (cubed)
1 cup plain yogurt(150g)
100g caster sugar
29g gelatin(dissolved in 1/4 cup water)
350ml whipping cream
for decoration
2 mangoes
some whipping cream(whipped)

Washed and peel the mangoes.  2 cubed while the other 2 sliced and keep aside.

 Hand mix the egg yolks,sugar, water, corn oil, flour and baking powder until well-combined. Leave aside.
In another mixing bowl, use electric mixer to beat up the egg whites, sugar and the cream of tartar until foamy.  Combine with well-mixed egg yolks mixture and bake in preheat oven for 40 -45 minutes.
Invert the cake to cool before slicing into 3 layers.
Next prepare the filling.  Mix cubed mangoes, yogurt and sugar in a bowl. Dissolve gelatin in water by double boiling over simmering water until it turns clear. Mix with mangoes mixture.  Meanwhile whip up the whipping cream and add into the mango mixture.  Divide into 2 portions.
 Place a layer of cake into loose cake tin. Spread a layer of mango mixture onto it. Repeat the next layer until finish . Keep the cake chilled.
For Decoration, whip the cream. Spread on the top and side of the cake. Decorate with sliced mangoes.

My first mango cake is a success. Every body like it very much. Taste like mango ice-cream.
