Mango and coconut cakes
I am down to the last few mangoes from the huge box load that travelled home with us from the north coast.
We have been feasting on them for brekkie, tossing slices through salads and blitzing them with banana, yoghurt, honey and ice-cold milk in smoothies.
As a nod to Australia Day, I made a mango and coconut version of my apple tea cakes for a couple of the cafes I supply.
The few I had left over didn't last long around here!
I hope you like them too.
Happy Strayla Day!
