Tropical Coffee Cake

Tropical Coffee Cake

The mango and coconut give this coffee cake a delicious island feel… If you can’t find mangoes, use nectarine or peaches. The yogurt and oil keep the cake moist. Fruity balsamic would make this even more tropically delightful. Preparation time will take 25 minutes, bake time will take 35 minutes and there will be 8 servings.
