I’m excited to share that June is National Mango Month! To celebrate, I challenged myself to “mang-over” a dessert recipe and showcase one of my favorite fruits, mangos.

This Mango Cobbler with Cardamom is the perfect easy dessert recipe. Delicious mangos are topped with a yummy, crisp oat topping that’s absolutely irresistible. It’s perfect right out of the oven topped with ice cream.

Mango Cobbler

Growing up, I have fond memories of the Apple Cobbler that my dad used to make. It smelled so good, and I loved digging into it while it was still warm from the oven. But, the truth is, I would always just pick off the cobbler topping and not really eat the apples… they were always a bit too tart for my taste.

So, now that I’m all grown up, I’m making a cobbler of my own, and swapping mangos for the apples. I love that with six main varieties of mangos available at different times of year, mangos are always in season.

Friends… This is one amazing cobbler.

It’s got sweet and delicious mangos that concentrate as they cook away in the cast iron skillet, a crumbly cobbler topping that’s made extra hearty with the addition of some oats. And, to just take everything over the top, it’s got a sprinkling of cardamom, which adds just that hint of something extra, and makes you think – “Hmmm… What is that delicious flavor I’m tasting?” It almost tingles on your tongue.

Cooking the mangos in a cast iron skillet with a bit of vanilla and sugar really takes this mango crisp recipe over the top. The flavors get really concentrated and delicious and the fruit thickens up a bit so there’s no fear of having a watery cobbler. It’s important that you choose ripe mangos for this recipe. To test the ripeness level, be sure to give your mango a gentle squeeze to see if it gives slightly when pressed.

The topping for this mango crumble made with flour and old-fashioned rolled oats is definitely delicious. With just the right amount of crunch and all combined together with that touch of cardamom, I’m almost brought back to my childhood days where I was happy just eating the cobbler topping. But, it would be a shame to miss out on the delicious mangos hiding underneath.

How to Make Mango Cobbler:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cook mango with sugar, butter, flour, cornstarch, vanilla and salt in a cast iron skillet until bubbly and thickened.
  • Combine flour, oats, sugar, cardamom and salt. Add the butter and mix with a stand mixer until it holds together in coarse clumps, adding a splash of water, if needed.
  • Drop large tablespoons of dough on top of warm fruit.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes, until the edges are bubbling and the top is golden brown.
  • Enjoy!

    loved the idea of mango in a cobler when I saw the recipe title, I prefer something not as sweet as almost any other fruit would be, so thank you!
