Mango Almond Bundt Cake

Mango Almond Bundt Cake

I had mangoes that I completely forgot about and knew there was no way we’d be able to eat them before they were overripe, so I did what anyone would do… turned to the internet for a bundt cake recipe. I figured that might be the easiest way to use them. I adapted my recipe from one I found from Goodie Godmother. Check out the original! I didn’t make any glade since mango is so naturally sweet, but it would be excellent with a glaze, so I’ll include that in my recipe as well.


  • 2 fresh mango, diced (more if using for garnish)
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup finely sliced almonds almonds


  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp of milk, cream, or water


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F, then spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut the mangoes, mix with the lemon juice, and set aside.
  3. Combine the eggs, oil, vanilla extract, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer or in a mixing bowl. 
  4. Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, and salt. 
  5. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then fold in the diced mango and almonds.
  6. Pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake 45-50 minutes until a tester comes out clean and the cake lightly springs back when touched. 
  7. Remove from the oven and cover with a clean, slightly damp tea towel for 10 minutes. Remove the tea towel and carefully invert onto a cooling rack. 
  8. While the cake is cooling, and is nearly completely cool, make the glaze by combining the melted butter, salt, and 1 cup of the powdered sugar into a bowl. Work the powdered sugar in 1 cup at a time and then add milk, cream, or water 1 Tbsp at a time until the glaze has reached the desired consistency. Drizzle or pour over the cake and top with extra diced mango, if desired.
