Now that it is Spring, I enjoy baking desserts with lots of Summer fruit flavors like red raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and luscious mango! Pillsbury has a new line of tropical flavor cake mixes and frosting that I decided to incorporate into a delicious Triple Berry Mango Upside Cake Recipe!

Triple Berry Mango Upside Down Cake Recipe
This Triple Berry Mango Upside Down Cake Recipe is a delicious twist on a traditional Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The combination of mango, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries with the Tropical Mango cake all together is sure to tantalize your taste buds! It is the perfect way to usher in Spring and Celebrate More with Pillsbury.
Pillsbury has a delicious selection of new Spring/Summer inspired flavors including the Pillsbury™ Moist Supreme® Tropical Mango Flavored Premium Cake Mix that I used to prepare this recipe as well as Key Lime, in cake mix, cookie mix, and frosting! YUM!
- 1 stick butter 1/2 cup
- 1/4 cup Truvia Blend or 1/2sugar
- 2 tbsp Heavy whipping cream
- Pillsbury Moist Supreme Tropical Mango Premium Cake Mix
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup Crisco Oil
- 3 Whole Eggs
- 10 strawberries
- 1/2 pint Raspberries
- 1/2 pint Blueberries maybe less
- 1 Ripe Mango
- Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan).
- Melt butter in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat.
- Add Truvia Blend (or sugar) and whipping cream and heat to boil, stirring non-stop.
- Boil for 30 seconds.
- Pour Truvia mixture into 13x9-inch rectangular pan.
- Top Truvia mixture with mango, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries - covering the majority of the surface area - this will be the top of your cake!
- Prepare Pillsbury Moist Supreme Tropical Mango Premium Cake Mix as directed on the box with 1 cup water, 1/2 cup oil, and 3 whole eggs. (You can also use the Egg White Reicpe on the box, increasing the water to 1-1/4 cup, 1/2 cup oil, and 4 egg whites.)
- Pour Pillsbury Mango Premium Cake batter over fruits evenly.
- Bake 38 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake.
- Once you remove from the oven, run a sharp knife around sides of pan to ensure cake doesn't stick to the sides.
- Flip your cake pan upside down onto heatproof serving platter. (I use a large glass cutting board).
- Allow pan to rest for a minute or so over your serving platter to ensure all the Truvia and fruit mixture releases from the pan.
- Serve Triple Berry Mango Upside Down Cake warm or cool.
- If there are any leftovers, store it in the fridge, with a cover.
This is a super easy recipe to prepare but looks and taste like it took forever! For the sugar mixture on the bottom, I used Truvia sugar blend because it reduces carbs, something my family counts because of Type 1 Diabetes. You can easily replace it with regular sugar too. If you like the traditional brown sugar mixture that you find with pineapple upside down cake, feel free to use that for this recipes as well. Instead of the Truvia and whipping cream, use 1 cup packed brown sugar when preparing.
You can slice the fruit however you’d like. I kept my pieces rather large for visual appeal. I sliced the strawberries in 1/2 so there would be juicy large pieces to bite into with each bite. You can chop or slice them however you’d like. A trick I learned to peel a mango is to slice it from top to bottom in section, then peel the peel off section by section. Also, sprinkle a little lemon juice on top of the mango once you slice them to retain the bright yellow color -I forgot to do this for this recipe.
When I mixed up the batter for the mango cake, it filled my kitchen with amazingly fresh mango flavor and when I bit into the first bite of the upside down cake, I was in Tropical Mango heaven! Next, I plan to make Tropical Mango cupcakes with the Tropical Mango Frosting – doesn’t that sound fresh and delicious?
Triple Berry Mango Upside Down Cake is perfect for enjoying at home with your family and friends or taking to a Spring picnic or potluck! I plan to mix up another batch for my son’s Cub Scout Blue & Gold ceremony next week. It’s sure to be a hit with the delicious fresh berries and mango on top and flavorful, moist mango cake.
