    this was very easy to make. the only change i would make to the recipe is to add more water. to reduce the mangos to a sauce i needed a lot more water, but after i did that, it was great! my guests put this over white cake and loved it.  -  14 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I came across this recipe while searching for a "strawberry shortcake" substitute. I put this topping over a slice of pound cake, and my family LOVED it! This recipe has so many possible applications, and I can't wait to explore them all. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe.  -  22 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a way to use some mangoes that were ripening faster than I could eat them. This was easy and worked well as a pancake topping. Had no OJ so substituted passion fruit juice for a little more tropical taste. Felt like the butter overshadowed the fresh fruit taste and will definitely leave it out next time.  -  17 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
