Description

Reminiscent to a pineapple upside down cake, this mango and coconut sponge cake is baked upside down and inverted for an attractive tropical sponge cake. Mangos and a buttery caramel sauce are put into the bottom of the cake pan to be topped by a creamy coconut cake batter. The end result is a deliciously tropical cake that is perfect for summertime. Bake time on this cake is 50 minutes. Instructions for preparation are intended for a food processor.
