Topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream, this cake is very easy to make, and it's super moist warm from the oven.

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. Arrange mango slices in 3 rows in pan. Sprinkle brown sugar over mango. Drizzle with 1/4 cup melted butter; set aside.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, stir together granulated sugar, egg, and molasses with a wooden spoon. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; stir into molasses mixture. Add water and remaining 1/4 cup melted butter; stir well.

Step 3

Spoon batter over mango slices.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan and center is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes.

Step 5

Beat whipping cream and vanilla at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form.

Step 6

Serve sweetened whipped cream with warm cake. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

Step 7

Tip: If fresh mango isn't in season, check the produce section for sliced mango in a jar.
