This bundt cake pan is just so dang intricate and pretty! And, that’s why I wanted to create a new cake. Now, who doesn’t love juicy sweet mangoes. But, who the heck wants to peel them? Not me! So, I head for the frozen mangoes, which are perfect for this recipe. Not only do you have the awesome flavors, but you have instantly avoided the hassle of peeling and slicing the mangoes.

Another shortcut, and, you know that I love to give you recipes that deliver that ‘time in the kitchen’ homemade flavor without all the investment of serious time, is to use the cake mix. Just by adding some additional ingredients like the pudding mix, sour cream and mango, you have the deliciousness of fresh baked.

I didn’t top this cake with anything but some unsweetened coconut shavings. There’re so many things you can add. Just use your imagination. What you see here in my picture is a rhubarb strawberry sauce I made. Yes, the tang of that rhubarb adds extra zing to the moist tender cake slices. And, if you love coconut like I do, add plenty more because it’s a nice textural addition!

Here’s another quick and easy cake using a really good cake mix option. It’s super popular. The Bridesmaid’s Peach Cake!

Yield: One Bundt Cake Pan


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • 8 oz. mango chunks, previously frozen
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (16.25 oz.) cake mix, white
  • 1 box (3.5 oz.) vanilla pudding, instant
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup coconut, unsweetened shaving, divided


  • Grease a bundt cake pan very well. Put one-half cup of the coconut shavings in the bottom.
  • Put the mango chunks and sour cream in a food processor and pulse into a thick mixture. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix, vanilla pudding, butter, eggs and the mango mixture.
  • Use a hand mixer and combine into a thick batter. Pour into the well-greased bundt pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 45-55 minutes. Use a six-inch skewer to do the toothpick test.
  • Remove to a cooling rack. Invert and remove from pan when cool. Sprinkle on the remaining coconut shavings. Ready to serve.


Be sure you grease your bundt pan well, especially if you have one of the fancy ones like this one I used. I prefer Crisco in order to get into all the nooks and crannies of the pan.

  1. Hello Ally,
    I’d like to use fresh mangos. The Kiett and champagnes variety are really good. Since your recipe calls for 8 oz of frozen, is that the same as 1 cup of packed fresh mango chunks? Does the qty color the cake to mango orange or do I need to add color gel to make it mango orange? Thx from californis

    • Hi Shar! Ally from the East Coast! Good morning! I’ve never had a Kiett or Champagne variety mango. Just read about them, and they sound divine. Lucky you! I’m not sure there’s that much difference w/8 oz. (thawed) frozen and fresh. Here’s something I found on a Google search: “A ripe, 12-ounce mango will provide about 1 cup of fruit. Slightly larger (13- to 14-ounce) mangoes will leave you with a bit extra if you want to add a few slices of mango for a garnish.” Rather than a white cake mix, why don’t you do a yellow cake mix, and you’ll probably have the hue you want. This is such a delicious cake, and so easy w/the cake mix. You might want to do some extra mango puree for serving as a garnish. I’d do mango and mascarpone cheese with just a little sour cream depending upon the consistency you want. Please let me know how yours turns out. And, thank you for so much support! Happy cooking, luv! xo ~ally
