Directions for the Topping:

  • Wash and dry the mangoes, remove the skin and slice mangoes lengthwise, cut into half-inch slices.
  • Melt butter over med-low heat in a small pan, once melted, stir in the brown sugar /regular sugar stirring occasionally for about 2-3 minutes, until the sugar is incorporated and you’re left with caramel like thick paste.
  • Butter the bottom and sides of a 8-inch cake pan and spread the butter/sugar mixture.( I had just bought a flower shaped pan, wanted to use it) spread the mixture across the cake pan as best you can.
  • Arrange the mango slices on top in whatever pattern you think is prettiest. Set aside.


Directions for the Cake:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit or 180 degree celsius
  • In a medium bowl sieve together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl, beat the sugar and softened butter until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the 2 whole eggs and one egg yolk one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla essence.
  • Add the flour baking powder and salt sieved mixture and fold in until just combined, don’t over mix.
  • Spoon the batter over the arranged mango slices in the cake pan – being careful not to disturb your lovely arrangement – and spread the batter evenly.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then run a thin knife along the edges of the pan, invert onto a plate.
  • Serve at room temperature with ice cream or whipped cream .. yum!
