Today was a beautiful day in Tulsa, OK. It had finally warmed up and we had beautiful sunny skies. We decided to invite some friends to grill out and I wanted to make something sweet. I still had a mango sitting on the counter, so I pulled out my Cooking Light cookbook that I got from the Goodwill for $2.50 and searched under mango. I found this recipe and I had everything but the crystallized ginger, so I ran over to the store to pick some up. I found it in the produce section where they keep the dry fruit and nuts.
This cake turned out delicious! The sugar and crystallized ginger gave it this great crispy edge. I encourage you….like always to try it out. It was yummy deliciousness. 😀
