Mango and Ginger Cake

The story of this recipe begun with a comment from a reader. He commented about a mango cake he usually makes when the mangos are still green.

And like the phrase, curiosity killed the cat, I had to make my mango cake.

This is a super-extra-special-awesome-tender cake. With lots of flavour with bits of ginger that makes your tongue wake up.
The following day it will be better-special-and-fudgy

If it happens that mango is not your flavour or isn´t available, use any other full of flavour fruit
