Mango Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is one of my all-time favorite cakes. But somehow I go months, sometimes even years without making it! Italian cream cake is another one of those that happens too. Definitely a favorite, but I never think to make it.

In my latest Better Homes magazine a gorgeous carrot cake graced the cover. And it even had a little twist added in.

Mango juice.

Umm yum. Mangoes are one of my favorite summer time fruits. They are fantastic to eat on their own, but also make the perfect addition to all types of salsa, potato salads, etc. Turns out, they also make a fabulous addition to carrot cake.

Somehow I was able to refrain from smothering this cake in cream cheese icing, and just did a light layer on top and in between the two cakes.   I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but it was a really good decision.

It let the carrot cake shine.

Now don’t go expecting a light and fluffy cake with this recipe. It is dense. Gloriously dense.

Anonymous - Hi, This is the first carrot cake recipe I saw without a lot of oil. I like that. Could crushed pineapple be added to this cake? I think I will be making this. Thank you
