Ingredients (for 8 pieces or 24 cm cake)

Cookie crust

150 g butter cookies

70 g butter

 

Creamy topping

400 g cream cheese

200 ml whipped cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

Half of mango, cut in small pieces

 

Mango topping

1 mango

3 tablespoons sugar

1 pack of instant gelatine

 

Decoration (optionally)

Half of mango, cut in slices

100 ml whipped cream

 

Procedure

Crush the cookies and melt the butter. Add melted butter to the cookies and stir. Cover the bottom of the baking tray with the mixture, you can cover the edges as well. Bake for 8 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.

For creamy topping, firstly, whip the whipping cream – I prefer plant-based. Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and lemon juice. Stir thoroughly so you get a homogenous mixture. Lastly, add mango pieces. Spread the topping on the cookie crust and put in fridge for at least 2 hours.

Cut mango in pieces, cover it with sugar and heat up. Blend the mixture so it becomes totally smooth. Add the gelatine and stir all the time. When mixture gets cold, pour it on the top of the cake and put in the fridge for couple of hours, the best if overnight.

You can decorate your cake with mango slices and whipped cream as seen on the picture.
