Mango is not often used in baking, but if this moist and flavorful cake is any indication, perhaps it should be. The batter is supremely easy to prepare; just whisk together mango pulp, melted and cooled butter, sugar, water, and flour, whisking well between each ingredient to fully combine, and then the eggs are added one at a time, whisking well after each. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
