These almost remind me of pineapple upside down cake, but with out the super sweet shot of brown sugar. They are moist but not gooey. Hope you like them.

    These are very nice, Thank you Rita! Jenn DeG and I just made some. Though not overly sweet, they have a very nice honey flavor. We had trouble getting the mango in small enough pieces. Next time I’ll work on that so the lovely mango bits are more spread out. Yummm.
