Mango Topping

Mango Topping - great for ice cream, cake, etc. | The Baking Beauties


With all the fruits that are in season now, it is a good idea to take advantage of it. I have never really eaten mangoes before. I tried them for the first time last year, and this year, have had quite a few. Once you figure out how to peel & dice them, they really aren’t so intimidating anymore.

This super simple Mango Topping, which we ate on ice cream, would have been great on white cake too. Although the flavour was really good, next time I think I would add either some scraped out vanilla bean, or some rum to it while frying it up. But, as is, it was really delicious as well.

Mango Topping
  • 3 cups mangoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons water
  1. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Stir until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and serve.

    Mmmm! I love mangoes. They are one of my favourite ingredients for smoothies.

    How come it took you so long to try one out?

    Ya know, I wish I knew why I never had a mango before last year. When I was young, I was a very picky eater, and we didn't have a great variety of fruits & veggies either. I have still never tried brussel sprouts or artichokes, papaya or pomegranate. So many things to try yet! :)

    Aren't all the mango recipes great? So summery!

    Now that sure looks like summer, Jeanine!

    I love to use mangoes in a Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad recipe. A really tasty/easy summertime dinner. Yum! (I think I sent that one to you last year…)

    I hope you don’t have to wait too long for some summery weather and fun, my friend…

    yes, Colleen, you did send me that recipe last year. I know I made the panzanella (sp?) last year, but not the jerk chicken. May have to do that soon. 😉

    Betty, now is the time to buy mangoes, it seems! I’ve seen them by the case everywhere. Delicious! :)
