Yum! I see why the submitter says you can leave out the fruit or sub other kinds of fruit--the cake is really good, but I have to say that if you have raspberries and mango, go for it bc the combo in this is awesome. The tartness of the raspberries keeps this from being too sweet, and the mango adds a counterweight to the raspberries. With the mild, yet flavorful cake it's wonderful. I misunderstood the directions for the topping (don't ask me why bc I've made thousands of these things so I must've been losing my mind) and and thought it was supposed to be wet like wet sand so I melted the butter. No, not correct at all--the recipe clearly says softened butter NOT melted butter. Sigh. But for all of that, it still tastes wonderful, just the crumble is missing in mine. I bet it would be even better than wonderful for people who can actually follow recipes to the letter (I really can't apparently!). Thank you for a delicious recipe!
