  • Beat the sugar and egg yolks together until very light in colour. Note: Every now and then you would have to use a spatula to lift the sugar form the sides and bottom as you beat. Of course you have to stop the mixer first.

  • Mix the almond essence and coconut essence with the lemon juice.
  • Mix egg whites, cream of tartar and salt together. Beat until very stiff.
  • Add the flour a little at a time while you beat the egg yolks.
  • Alternate the flour with the lemon juice until all is used up. Fold in the egg whites.
  • Pour the batter into a greased pan or tube pan. Bake in a moderate oven for 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave to cool.
  • For Mango Sauce
  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
