If you’re looking for a fresh Mango Cake recipe you should definitely keep this one in mind from Delicieux.

The cake is quite light and has pieces of diced fresh mango throughout. For a little more tropical fun, add in some shredded coconut and a zesty lime icing. 

The recipe is straightforward and easy to make, yet it feels a bit special because of the mango.

The main reason I like this recipe is simply the use of mango in a baked cake. I love mango and I love cake so combining the two is a natural step for me. But it’s actually not that easy to find good baked mango cake recipes – mango mousse cakes are the more popular choice it seems (if you do want a mango mousse cake, this recipe is utterly spectacular).

If mango isn’t in season, you can use frozen mango cheeks but please steer away from canned mango. It’s a bit too sweet and syrupy for this recipe and changes the intended flavor profile which is light, tangy and tropical.

One other interesting thing to note, according to Delicieux the cake is even a hit with people who aren’t mango fans. Certainly worth a try wouldn’t you say?
