How to Make Mango Banana Surprise

  • Peel and slice the bananas. Toss them with 2 tbsp of lime juice.
  • Peel and cut mangoes into 2 cm cubes.
  • Make a rectangular cut at the underside of the cake without cutting through the top.
  • Scoop out the cake crumbs through that cut to make a hollow in the cake.
  • Mash the crumbs with 2 - 3 tbsp cream. Chop 1/2 the banana slices into pieces.
  • Mix them with some of the mango pieces and add to the mashed crumbs.
  • Fill the hollow in the cake with this mixture.
  • Place the cake, top side up on a serving plate. Prick all over with a fork.
  • Sprinkle with mango juice. (Flavour the juice with rum or brandy if desired.)
  • Whip the remaining cream and sweeten to taste with icing sugar.
  • Decorate the top of the cake with cream, banana slices and mango pieces. Serve chilled.
