A classic upside cake recipe made with mangoes


Mangoes are still in season and here’s a unique and extraordinary mango upside-down cake recipe you can make with mangoes tonight. Fruity, incredibly moist and insanely delicious!



☛2 cups flour (250 g)

☛1 ¹/₂ cups sugar (300 g)

☛2 large mangoes sliced into ¹/₂  inch slices

☛1 ¹/₂ sticks unsalted butter (12 tablespoons) melted

☛1 cup whole (liquid) milk (240 ml)

☛¹/₂ teaspoon salt

☛3 eggs

☛1 teaspoon vanilla extract

☛1 ¹/₂ teaspoons baking powder


Grease a 10-inch baking pan with oil or melted butter, preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

Mix one third (¹/₂ ) cup of melted butter with ¹/₂ cup of sugar then spread mixture to coat the bottom of the baking pan.

Arrange mango slices over the butter and sugar coating. They should be tightly packed, leaving no space in between.

Make the cake batter. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Add in eggs and mix well. Then add in flour, baking powder, salt and whisk together to form a smooth batter.

Pour batter into prepared baking pan and smoothen the top with a spatula.

Bake in prepared oven for about 50 minutes until it is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Turn cake upside down and serve!

Recipe Notes: You may want to reduce the sugar content of the batter to half or a quarter cup if you do not have much of a sweet tooth.

Mangoes are high in antioxidants, which have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is one of the major risk factors for serious diseases including cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.
