Mango filling & glaze

My Dad requested a mango filled cake for his Father’s Day cake. I usually just use pie filling for my cake fillings since I am a hobby baker. But I found this recipe online & it was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS so I had to share! This is Nancy Vienneau’s recipe on her Good Food Matters blog.


Amount Ingredient 1 large very ripe Mango 1 C water 1 1/2 C Confectioners sugar 1 Lemon, for juice


Peel the ripe mango and cut into pieces, placing them, (and the juices!) into a saucepan. Add 1 cup of water, and 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Cook until mango pulp becomes dissolved, and incorporated into the liquid. Add lemon juice. Simmer until somewhat thick and glazy. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and allow to cool.
I also added a couple of tsp of corn starch to thicken the filling slightly.
