Delicious recipe, but I did make some changes that may have changed the taste. I cut sugar down by 1/4, and sub'd 1/3 cup of oil for apple sauce. Instead of raisins and nuts (I had none) I used 1 cup combined of chopped dried mango/apricots soaked in rum, and added 1/2 tsp of cardamon and 1/2 tsp ginger. I messed up trying to follow other reviews and accidentally added 3 tsp baking powder/1 tsp baking soda, so cake rose very nicely, but perhaps was slightly salty (but only because I knew). Apricots were perfect addition since they added the zip that is in fresh mangoes, but seems to be lost when it is baked. Can't wait for next mango season to make this some more!
