This delicious cake, a family favorite, originated years ago with a great-aunt who lived in Florida and had her own mango tree. It's a sweet, moist cake, with slightly crisp edges. —Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas

MY REVIEW

"I live in Florida and I was trying to figure out what to do with all the mangoes that come into season besides mango salsa. This cake is absolutely one of the best I've ever tasted. My family agrees. I double this recipe for one cake and quadruple it for two (plus a little extra for muffins.) I also put in double the amount of mango since I have so many but it's not necessary. It seems to me that this recipe would be wonderful with peaches also."

"awesome!!! i doubled the recipe to get a larger cake & baked it for about 45 minutes at 375. Baking time mostly depends on your oven. I just tested it every few minutes after 30 minutes."

"Loved it! Tripled the recipe and made two 9 in cakes. Also left out the pecans and used pastry flour instead of all-purpose."

"I doubled the recipe and used an 8 in. cake pan. I served it without any icing, whipped cream or powdered sugar. Everyone liked it."
