2 large eggs, separated
3 level tbsp sweetener
40g plain flour Zest of 1 lime
1 level tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Line the base of an 18cm diameter, loose-bottomed cake tin with baking paper. In a large bowl beat the egg yolks with half the sweetener using an electric hand whisk until pale and frothy, then mix in the flour, lime zest, melted coconut oil and 2 tbsp water.
2 Clean the beaters. In a separate clean, glass bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add the remaining sweetener and beat until thick and glossy. Stir a third of the egg-white mixture into the flour mixture until well combined. then gently fold in the remaining egg-white mixture. Spread into the tin and bake for 10.12 minutes, or until springy. Leave to cool in the tin.

5 Put the yogurt and chopped mango into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Add the gelatine mixture and pulse to combine. Pour onto the sponge and chill for 4 hours. or until firm.
6 Lift the cake from the tin and discard the cling film. Peel the other mango. sit it on its end and cut the cheeks from either side of the stone. Slice as thinly as you can, curling them to make roses, then use to decorate. Slice into 6 and serve.
