Olive oil and canola have different heat points. I use sesame all the time but would not use for baking. I Will use butter instead or aged whipping cream...75% cream, 25% milk and stir together. That works too. Same equal amounts of apple sauce as oil.

I replaced canola oil with olive oil for the cake. And the top of the cake burnt. Could you tell me why that happened?

I made this cake yesterday. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 inch pan for 35 minutes. Most likely will make again. Very good.

Loved this cake and it was a huge hit at the Christmas party. I followed the recipe except used applesauce instead of oil and added maybe an extra half-cup of mangoes. It filled my 8-inch pan most of the way (I was nervous it would overflow but it didn't) and took about 45 minutes to bake. Tastes kind of like a light, moist fruitcake - I think this is joining my annual Christmas menu!

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.

This is light and delicious! I took it to a tailgate and a dinner party, and it was a huge success!

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