Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Additional: 30 mins
- 1 ripe mango
- 1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup water
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons lime zest
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- ½ lime, juiced
- 1 tablespoon golden rum (Optional)
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).
Peel mango with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Cut flesh into small pieces and squeeze it for juice. Collect all juice from the chopping and squeezing pit and reserve for glaze. Smash mango in a bowl using a potato masher or fork. Measure 1 cup mashed mango, reserving the rest for the glaze.
Beat 1 cup mashed mango, cake mix, eggs, water, vegetable oil, and lime zest together in a bowl using an electric mixer for 2 minutes; pour into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool cake in pan for 5 minutes. Invert cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Combine butter, lime juice, about 1 tablespoon reserved juice from mango, and rum together in a bowl. Stir confectioners’ sugar into butter mixture until desired consistency is reached; fold smashed mango into glaze. Spoon glaze over cooled cake.
