  6. Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes.

Tip: To select a ripe mango, choose one that is firm but not hard and gives slightly when gently squeezed. They also have a sweet, fruity aroma around the stem and smooth, yellow- to red-blushed skin. A long, flat seed runs down the center of each mango. Stand the mango, stem end up, on a cutting board. Carefully use a sharp knife to slice lengthwise through the flesh slightly to the right, then the left, of the stem and seed.

For Pineapple Upside-Down Cake: Substitute 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple slices in juice, drained, for mango and lemon juice. Cut each pineapple slice in half. Arrange slices in circular pattern. Prepare batter and bake as stated above.
