Mango-Rose Milk Cake


           Happy Mother's Day to all::)
     I would love to share this Mango-Rose Milk Cake on Mother's Day. I am sure you guys are ready for rock & roll with me in "Mango Mania" again.. 





I'm proud Mom of two awesome kids and this recipe is one of the favorite dessert of them. As living in USA, eating mangoes in abundance during summer for kids and U.S. For the entire summer, my fridge would have a whole shelf dedicated to this princely fruit. Whenever I open the fridge the sweet aroma of mangoes always make place to expansion all over. And it always like falling love for Mangoes again and again.:) 
           Milk cake is well known sweet by us. It also known as "Kalakand". It's originally takes time to make it, but I'm going to share very quick and yummy recipe with twist of variation and twinki taste. Basically it's Mango Milk Cake but when you try with the most radiant ingredient, it will change the richness of this dessert. And here is the most radiant ingredient "Rose Petals":)). This is the "wow" factor(ingredient) in this very common dessert. It tastes deliciously delicious with crumble texture just like the one sold in sweet stalls.
