Ripe juicy mangoes baked in a sumptuous cake. covered in sweet cream cheese frosting.
CAKE:2 1/2 cups mashed mangoes
FROSTING:8 ounces cream cheese, softened
Spoon into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake in preheated 350 degrees oven for 40 minutes. Check cake for doneness (an inserted toothpick comes out clean) as oven temperatures and cooking times may vary. Cool.
Beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a mixer bowl until light. Add the confectioners' sugar, beating until smooth. Spread over the cake.
