Mango Snacking Cake  is my  recipe of the day for Back to School treats week.  For this event, I have been posting several times this week.  Of those, I posted recipes that kids will enjoy for breakfast,  snacks and  dessert.

Monday I posted Monkey tail  crescent rolls, a sweet treat filled with banana and chocolate and drizzled with caramel. They are easy and good.

Wednesday I posted Banana Mango Overnight Oats, a yummy no-cook  solution for busy morning breakfasts.

Today I am  moving forward to my  last recipe of the week with Mango Snacking Cake, another recipe that showcases my singular love for that tropical fruit.

Mango Snacking Cake

What I love about this cake is it’s simplicity  in  putting together, the lack of a top-heavy  cloying frosting, and a great  moist texture that perfectly complements  something   like ice cream or  whipped  cream as a finishing touch. Or  even on  it’s own.

This cake is  a great size too, being in  a square pan,  it  makes nine nice pieces that are essentially brownie sized.

Whether you have  this in the afternoon as an after-school  snack  or  sweet for  high tea, it  can carry you through the doldrums of the afternoon to your evening dinner.
