My Yummy Mango & Coconut Brulee Cake

Norma DeRemer


Just sitting her on a cold day and decided to look up some of my old recipes to share. This is one that always gets a big "WOW" when I served it to friends and family. Isn't it something how through the years you can accumulate so many great recipes and remember to go and look into your recipe box for something different to make for a dinner you are planning. Well, I'll have to make this one very soon. I remember making this with a variety of different fruits such as peach, pineapple and apple and always using my iron skillet instead of a cake pan.
