Mango Upside-Down Cake

5.0 1 Recipe Reviews | Rate this Recipe | 77 Saves
Mango Upside-Down Cake is a treat that will quickly become a family and entertaining favorite! This recipe is a twist on the classic upside-down cake recipe, with mangoes replacing pineapples. Tip: To select a ripe mango, choose one that is firm but not hard and gives slightly when gently squeezed. They also have a sweet, fruity aroma around the stem and smooth, yellow- to red-blushed skin. A long, flat seed runs down the center of each mango. Stand the mango, stem end up, on a cutting board. Carefully use a sharp knife to slice lengthwise through the flesh slightly to the right, then the left, of the stem and seed.
