So named for my friend Hieu who loves this "rarely loved" combination of flavors. The cake is made with homemade ground almonds, similar to almond meal. The almonds are baked right in, practically evaporating into the cake, leaving no traces but it's luscious moisture and fragrant aroma. Freshly cut mango is added into the cupcake for a more naturally sweetened taste. Glazed on top is a mixture of mango puree with fresh ginger and to top everything off is a mound of toasted coconut sprinkled with powder sugar. Enjoy!
