1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons finely minced crystallized ginger
12 (1/2-inch) thick slices pound cake
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
2 firm but ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and cut into small slices
Mint sprigs (garnish)


Beat cream, sugar and cinnamon with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; stir in crystallized ginger and set aside in the refrigerator until shortcakes are ready to assemble. Stir together butter and cinnamon sugar; spread lightly over one side of each cake slice. Grill over medium heat for a few minutes on each side to lightly brown. Place half the cake slices on 6 dessert plates, sugar side up. Top with half the whipped cream and half the mango slices. Repeat layers and garnish with mint sprigs.
