I've made this cake three times now and each time it got raves from my family and friends. It's lovely and moist with great flavour. It's a beautiful dessert to go with an Asian meal. Or just on its own. If you can get long, moist shredded coconut instead of the small, dry stuff it's nicer.
As an alternative to sprinkling on icing sugar and putting it under the griller I tried brushing the cake pan with butter and sprinkling with palm sugar before laying down the sliced mango. It was fine but not better and the mango discoloured slightly.
Do try this recipe. You won't be disappointed.
