This is a fabulous cake. Delicious and the fruit makes you think it's healthy too!! I was looking for a recipe to use up a couple of brown bananas, and so, not having a mango to hand, I used both of them. I didn't get round to making the topping, but it was great without it.

Yummy cake. Easy to make. Takes a little bit of time prepping the fruit, but it was really easy and tastes good. And healthy? Will become a regular for us.
