Mango Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Mango Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I hope all you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Thank you for your warm wishes. I had a pretty relaxing day with minimal work in the kitchen. Ro-Ri San prepared breakfast and we went out for a family style Italian lunch. The meal was lovely and very satisfying. For tea, we had this Mango Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Orange Blossom Panna Cotta with Orange Sauce. We were stuffed and only needed a simple and light dinner that evening.

Mango is one of my favorite fruits and I like using it in desserts when in season. With the Orange Coconut Cake recipe as a guide, I made this cake Friday evening and frosted it on Saturday. The cake was moist and tender. It could stand on its own but the cream cheese frosting made it even more delicious.

Mango Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting is one of my favorite frosting. It is smooth, creamy, and not too sweet. This frosting goes well with most cakes.

    Hi Biren, I love mango especially in cakes or desserts and your pretty mango cake looks so tempting…I want to my cup of tea along too :)

    Me too! I love Mango… I think I wasn’t into mango until I married to my Taiwanese husband. Then I became obsessed with this fruit…. I see my kids are turning into mango lovers after us. I’m happy to know you had a great Mother’s Day Biren!

  6. says

    Wow, can you believe that I never had mango and cream cheese all together? Seeing you cake I am sure that I’ve been missing this yummie combination. The cake looks delicious, moist and full of flavor. Have a wonderful week Biren :-)

    Your cake is so pretty, Biren. It would be the perfect thing to have with an afternoon tea. My hubby would love it too — he’s a huge fan of mango!

    Mango hedgehog! Haha! 😀 This cake looks great … and I bet the combo of mango (super sweet) and cream cheese (creamy and a tad bit sour) was fantastic!

    • Biren says

      That would be a lovely surprise for a person who loves mangoes! Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining me. :)

    Your mango cake looks and sounds delicious, Biren. Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits also. I love that you finished this with cream cheese frosting. Mango hedge hog? I’ve never heard it being called that before, how interesting. Now I have a name for that piece of mango :-D. Hope you had a beautiful Mother’s Day!

    This looks finger licking good Biren! It’s funny when I was younger I never used to like mango cake/bread when my mom made it. But now… I love it! I can only imagine how good it is with cream cheese frosting.

  11. says

    Oh my! Oh my!… Mangoes.. I am Mango Mad.
    I have been wanting to bake mango cake… as always, the mangoes would be gone before I could search and read the recipe 😀

  12. says

    This is excellent. There are lot of mangoes where I come from but I’ve never heard of anyone making mango cake but they make banana cake and carrot cake- don’t know why.

  13. says

    So glad you had a relaxing Mother’s Day! This is another delightful treat, mango is my favorite as well and I adore this. Looks incredibly moist and delicious :)

  14. says

    Your cake is magic and includes everything that makes life complete – mangoes and cream cheese 😀
