Mango Cake

Mango Cake


A delicious way to use my favorite fruit. If you don't have buttermilk, you may substitute sour milk. Stir 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice together with 1 cup of milk and let stand for 10 minutes.

Loved this recipe! I put it in a bundt pan and, like the other reviews, agree that it does not rise much. I then added the "lime icing" another reviewer recommended. It was delicious. It was about 2 mangos to make a total of 1 cup. Icing: 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 stick butter, juice from 1 lime, 1 tsp vanilla. Delish!! I will make it again


Fantastic recipe! I made it today, but with a few changes to turn it into a layer cake. Here's how: Make batter as recipe directs, but divide it between two 9-inch round pans. Bake 30-35 minutes. It will make two layers each about 3/4-inch thick (doesn't rise much). Layer them with a quick lime icing- 1/2 stick butter, the juice of one lime, a dash of vanilla, and enough confectioners sugar to make a nice thick icing. The cake is moist and mellow in flavor, and the icing is sweet and tart- a perfect combo. My friends loved it and took slices home with them- and I'm a total novice at cakes!


I had the same problem as the previous user of this recipe, it was too wet. I will make the recipes again but I will increase the Flour 1 1/4 and the other ingredients as well, cut the milk by 1/4 cup and add lemon zest instead of vanilla to bring up the mango more. Also I will add a mango glaze, confection sugar, butter and mango. I hope this review help new users of this recipe.
