1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sweet milk
10 medium fresh Mangos, peeled, seeded & chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 1/2 cups sugar
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat 1 cup sugar and butter together. Add sifted dry ingredients and then add milk. Beat well and pour into well buttered 9" x 13" pan. Mix chopped Mangos, pecans, raisins, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Cook filling in microwave on high setting for 5 minutes stirring once.
