This Tropical Peach Mango Coconut Cake is like sunshine on a plate. It is the tropical version of a coffee cake that’s perfect with a cup of coconut flavor coffee and also delicious topped with ice cream for a sweet night cap.
Sometimes the best cake comes from throwing together left over ingredients to clean out my fridge, which happens to consist of ripe mango and peaches, and left over mascarpone cheese from last week Peaches and Cream Pie. That was how this delicious Tropical Peach Mango Coconut Cake was born. It was also adapted from my Peach Coffee Cake but with a tropical twist.
Tropical Peach Mango Coconut Cake Recipe Tips and Tricks
- Mascarpone is a soft cheese, so once it softens at room temperature, it is very easy to incorporate into the batter. You can even skip the stand mixer and just use a hand whisk for this recipe.
- Coconut oil is usually liquid at temperature hotter than 76°F. So if you’re baking on a hot day, no need to melt your coconut oil in the microwave, just pour out and measure.
- I bake this cake in a 9” spring form pan so I can easily remove it. You can use any 9” cake pan, pie dish, cast iron skillet, anything that you can bake and serve in since you don’t want to invert the cake to remove it.
I love an easy recipe that can double as breakfast and dessert, and this Tropical Peach Mango Coconut Cake is it! It is dense but extremely moist and soft thanks to the mascarpone and the oodles of fresh fruits. It can work as a tropical version of a coffee cake when paired with a cup of morning coffee. Or you can serve it up after dinner with ice cream for a sweet night cap. Enjoy!
