Mix Baking Mix (Bisquick), Cornmeal and Sugar. Add Mango’s, Mango Juice and enough milk to make a thick batter.
Spoon batter into pan sections, filling each section half way up. Sprinkle a small amount of Pecans on top of the batter in each section. Cover the batter and nuts with a small amount of the brown sugar flour mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes. Let the pan cool, but still warm to the touch. Serve Warm.
The crumb cakes should form a crust and break loose from the pan. If not, run butter knife around edge and gently lift out.
While the cake is still warm, mix powdered sugar, water and vanilla together in a measuring cup. Drizzle syrup over cake in a decorative pattern.
