this was very easy to make. the only change i would make to the recipe is to add more water. to reduce the mangos to a sauce i needed a lot more water, but after i did that, it was great! my guests put this over white cake and loved it.

I hate to be a party pooper, but I really didn't enjoy this. I love fresh mango, but the combination of sour/sweet in this sauce was not to my liking. Maybe I'll try it on some different things and change this review, but I really didn't enjoy it.

I came across this recipe while searching for a "strawberry shortcake" substitute. I put this topping over a slice of pound cake, and my family LOVED it! This recipe has so many possible applications, and I can't wait to explore them all. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe.

I was looking for a way to use some mangoes that were ripening faster than I could eat them. This was easy and worked well as a pancake topping. Had no OJ so substituted passion fruit juice for a little more tropical taste. Felt like the butter overshadowed the fresh fruit taste and will definitely leave it out next time.

Outstanding. This topping elevated simple vanilla ice cream to a decadent, unexpected delight. And it couldn't be simpler. I'll be making this again.

Great flavor! Made exactly as written - used it on our pork chops for dinner and it had on our pancakes the next morning. A simple, quick tasty topping!

I did not use the exact measurements, I just used one mango and adjusted it to my taste. I used a lot more orange juice and water than the recipe called for. I also found it helpful to mash the mango with a fork while sauteeing it in the pan. I put this on top of a betty crocker vanilla cake, it was DELICIOUS.
