So what do you do?

Start by putting your oven on at 175 degrees C / 350 F. I a baking dish / tin (approx. 27 x 17 x 5 cms) put the first 3 ingredients in your dish and put them in the oven while it is warming to melt. Peel the mango and slice your fruit. When the butter and sugar mixture has melted take the dish out of the oven and arrange your fruit in the base. In a food processor (or a bowl) beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla until soft and fluffy, then add the eggs and beat them in. Next add the yoghurt and milk. Sift the flour and baking powder and add this to the mixture and combine well. You should have a thick batter. Spread the cake mixture over the fruit and put in the oven for about 45 mins, until a cake tester comes out clean. Leave in the dish for 5 minutes, run a knife around the edge of the cake and turn it out onto a serving dish. If the cake batter between the fruit isn’t properly cooked pop the cake back in the oven, on the serving dish, for 5-10 minutes until it’s cooked through. It’s a nice cake to have with a cup of tea of serve as a dessert with vanilla ice cream.
