Top Review by Ambervim

This is a very good upside down cake. The ginger gets lost, so may as well not use it. I like a simple mango/lemon sauce on top of it. I love it when I not only don't have to enter a recipe, but also find one even better than the one I was about to enter. I have 2 mango trees and am always looking for a new way to enjoy them!!!!
