Making this Mango Refrigerator Cake reminded me of my mother. In the Philippines, May is the month of town fiestas, scorching-hot summers, Santacruzans and Flores de Mayo, and for the sweetest mangoes on earth. We can proudly say the Philippines has perhaps the best mangoes in the world. It is also the country’s national fruit. Mangoes remind me of the trees in our farm, harvesting the fruits by the tiklis (bushels) and learning from mom all her recipes for goodies and treats. She would make jams, juices, jellies, pickles, candies, salsas, ice creams, ice candies, sherbets, flans, cakes and she even added mangoes to main dishes — the list of my mother’s mango recipes were endless.
This delightful, easy, no-bake Mango Refrigerator Cake is something you can whip up in minutes. Mother’s Day is next week and you can surprise mom or other moms in your life with this sweet treat. Make sure you have fully ripened, sweet mangoes on hand for this one. I used the Ataulfo variety, which is also called Champagne mangoes in Asian markets or large food stores here in America. This variety is the closest in texture and flavors to the Filipino Carabao mangoes.
Here’s to sweet endings to every meal. Let’s have dessert always.
