  • 4 medium eggs separated
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup cake flour
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • ¼ cup sugar for the meringue
  • 3 medium ripe mangoes cut into cubes


  • 600 ml pure cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Chocolate Ganache

  • 100 g chocolate melts
  • ½ tbsp vegetable oil


  • Separate the egg yolks and egg white. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolk, vegetable oil, water, evaporated milk, and sugar until well incorporated.
  • In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt before whisking. Gradually combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Next, make the meringue by beating the egg white using a hand-held mixer at low speed. Add the cream of tartar and gradually add the sugar as you continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold ⅓ of the meringue into the batter then immediately add the remaining egg mixture until well incorporated.
  • Grease the lyanera with melted butter. Fill it with batter up to ⅔ full. Steam for 15-18 minutes over low heat. Alternatively, bake at 160°C for 25-30 minutes with a water bath or bain marie.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting, whip the pure cream while gradually add the sugar. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Set aside inside the refrigerator.
  • To make the chocolate ganache, combine chocolate melts and vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 seconds until melted.
  • To assemble and decorate, transfer the sponge cake in a container or plastic tub, pipe the frosting on the sides and top of the cake. Put 2 heaping tablespoon of cubed mangoes on top and drizzle with chocolate ganache.
