Mango fruit cake

    1 hour 10 min

    A fruit loaf is taken to new heights with the addition of sliced mango. There's no added sugar in this cake, all the sweetness comes from the mango syrup or juice from the tin. And since this loaf cake is made with tinned mango, you can enjoy it any time of year!

    this cake is very refreshing and very tasty. I have made this recipe twice now and i do prefer it with a little less mixed fruit peel, but i will still give it a four on rating toni. c  -  03 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I found I had to alter my Flour measure ( I think due to metric conversion) however, I have made this time and time again with excellent reviews all round. Thanks for a great low fat cake!!  -  17 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
