About this recipe: Mango is so underused in cakes and muffins. Why not try it in this luscious, moist tea time cake? It infuses any occasion with a bit of tropical flavour and is a nice change from the norm.

I have never heard of cooking this kind of cake for 60 minutes. Turned out incredibly dry. - 15 Sep 2013


The mixture was very thick but it cooked beautifully. I baked it in a large loaf pan for one hour and substituted cranberries and coconut chips for raisins. Delicious, easy and quick. Great recipe. - 21 Mar 2013
