Eating mangoes is a great pleasure to me... I'm a very very big lover of the yellow dirty fellow... It has a awesome color and flavor some are orange color and some are yellow... In Singapore i don't find Alphonso mangoes... All I find here is banganapalli or Thai mangoes but they are not that sweet and they are light sour
So I don’t buy them often I have seen my friends using canned Alphonso mangoes but for no reason I usually Don't prefer canned foods ... Recently We had a short trip to Thailand... And for my surprise they had very tasteful mangoes, they were so sweet and the resort we stayed offered everyday shopping of fruits for free... Then what else, is needed all the four days had at least 2 mangoes a day... And i got some kg for home also... The spree of mango starts and have list of to do items in my space reserved for mangoes. So stay tuned for more interesting recipes on mangoes...

My mango was so sweet so i reduced the amount of sugar,so adjust the sugar according to the sweetness to mango.
You can replace cardamom powder with dry ginger powder and replace macadamia nuts with any nuts available or you can skip nuts also i always love cake with nuts so i add in.
Don't add in equal amount of puree and flour this makes the cake thick so add less amount of puree to flour.
