Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Butter a medium sized baking dish.
Mix together the pieces of bread and mango and place in the prepared baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla and cardamom. Pour over the bread. Dot with small pieces of butter.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until slightly puffed and golden brown.
I didn't add the cardamom, instead I used cinnamon. Everyone loved this and it was the easiest desert I think I've ever made!
You really could use any fruit you like, even tinned apple or peaches would work, but fresh is always best if you can get it. Though the mango is devine! Yum! Yum! - 11 Apr 2013
