    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 2 mangoes
    • ½ cup sugar or sugar substitute-sugar blend equivalent to ½ cup sugar (see Tip)
    • ¼ cup vegetable oil
    • ¾ cup fat-free milk
    • ⅓ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 egg whites
    • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
    • ½ cup whole-wheat flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom or ground allspice
    • 1¼ cups quick-cooking rolled oats


  • 1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 9 x 1- ½-inch round baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Seed, peel, and chop one of the mangoes; set aside. Seed, peel, and slice the remaining mango; set aside.
  • 2 In a large bowl, stir together sugar and oil. Add milk and egg. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute.
  • 3 In a small bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, lime peel, and cardamom or allspice. Add to beaten mixture; beat until combined. Stir in oats and chopped mango. Spoon into prepared pan. Arrange sliced mango over batter.
  • 4 Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake portion comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Tip: If using a sugar substitute-sugar blend, we recommend Splenda(R) Sugar Blend for Baking or Equal(R) Sugar Lite. Be sure to use package directions to determine product amount equivalent to ½ cup sugar.
