A tropical twist on the old-fashioned pineapple-upside down cake. This is always an impressive dessert...and succulent mango makes this one irresistible. The topping is a yummy combination of mango, brown sugar and butter. The cake itself is lightly spiced with ginger and vanilla. Drizzle warm mango sauce over top and enjoy every bite!! Be sure to place pan on baking sheet in case some butter or juices seep from pan -

This is wonderful. Not too sweet. Nice and moist. I put the sauce on it slice by slice instead of on top of the whole cake.
