Mango Cake - Almond Cake

I had intended to bake a Mango Sponge Cake. So I diced fresh mangoes and put into the batter to bake. Everything looked perfect. But the outcome somewhat wasn't very ideal. The sweet mango didn't go well with the batter as it baked. It became soggy and not so sweet. Maybe I shouldn't incorporate into the batter. It's either I place them on top the cake, or halfway into the baked cake with some whipped cream. Learnt something new. If I didn't try, I wouldn't know.. It was still edible, but not so ideal.

Anyhow I sprinkled some almond flakes and strawberries on top. The cake tastes good - minus the mangoes!
