My mother gave me heaps of mangos that didn't have much of a life span left. So I decided to make this cake using those mangos and it worked really well. I replaced the sultanas with walnuts and almond flakes. The cake itself didn't taste like it had mangos but it was very yummy. Thank you for the lovely recipe Missy Wombat
