This delicious cake, a family favorite, originated years ago with a great-aunt who lived in Florida and had her own mango tree. It's a sweet, moist cake, with slightly crisp edges. —Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped peeled mango
