  1. FOR THE CAKE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch springform cake pan.
  2. Peel and pit the mangoes. Cut into thin strips. Arrange mango slices on the bottom of the pan, covering it completely.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold into the butter mixture alternately with the lime zest, lime juice and macadamia nuts.
  4. Pour the batter over the mango slices. Bake for 50 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F and bake for 30 minutes more, until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes.
  6. FOR THE SYRUP: Combine the lime juice and sugar in a small nonaluminum saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes, until the syrup thickens slightly. Invert the cake onto a serving plate and brush with the lime syrup.
  7. Serve immediately with cream or ice cream.
