    easy to make but because of the nutmeg and cinnamon used on the mangoes, it tastes more like apple bars. I think next time I would omit the 2 ingredients mentioned.  -  02 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband absolutly loved them! However I cut out the Nutmeg, and used Spelt flour instead of white flour-eek! ANd maple syrup instead of sugar. They were delicious and a little healthier and much tastier than origonal recipie.  -  14 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband thought it tasted like apple cobbler.. but we both LOVED it! I could taste the mango in the thicker slices and they went so well with the cinnamon and nutmeg spices. I'm really happy with this recipe and how it turned out that I'm emailing this link to all of my friends. The only thing I changed was the cook time. I had to pull it out after 50mins to avoid burned edges and covered the edges with foil half way through as I saw the edges darkening quickly. I baked it in a glass dish so I dont know if that had something to do with it.  -  19 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
