TWD - Fresh Mango Bread
This week’s TWD is fresh mango bread and was chosen by Kelly from Baking with the Boys. I must confess that I didn’t used fresh mango, but used canned instead. I don’t seem to have a lot of success with buying mangos – they are often bruised and I don’t seem to be able to get enough flesh off the stone, so canned often does the trick for me.
The mango bread is a sweet loaf. I halved the recipe and made 8 mini loaves. I actually found the batter quite stiff and I did add some of the juice from the can of mangos to loosen up the mixture – maybe that is why mine were more loaf like than bread like? The loaves were spiced with a little ground ginger and cinnamon. Not too spicy, just a gentle hint of spiciness in the background. The verdict? Nice, I guess – not earth shatteringly delicious, but very nice. I ate one of the loaves last night and the rest are in the freezer for my husband’s lunches.
