Recipe Notes

  • For mango preference, you can use ripe or almost ripe mango. I suggest using mangoes that are in your kitchen. Or, you can buy them in some stores near you.
  • If you use frozen mango, I suggest to aside the mango. Then, you wait for them until it isn't frozen again. Then, dry it. If you process it right away, the water contained in the mango will make the dough mushy and runny.
  • Choose flour that you have in your kitchen. If you don't have all-purpose flour or cornflour, almond flour and a little tapioca flour can help.
  • I used granulated sugar, but you can use any sugar suitable for filling and topping.
  • The topping here is very simple. But, for additional topping, you can add chopped nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews, etc. Granola and oats also work to mix to the batter or as a topping.
  • If you eat it straight after it comes out of the oven, it probably won't be tasty. This is a dessert that is better cold.
