Tuesdays with Dories - Fresh Mango Bread


This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie pick comes from Kelly from Baking with the Boys.




I was really intrigued by this. The only fruit bread i've ever had is raisin bread so mangoes are definitely different. Luckily mangoes are a local fruit, nowhere near as expensive as imported berries. I got my two cups from one large sweet mango. My inlaws left last wednesday but i was expecting more family on friday. I haven't seen my cousin for 12 years and she is visiting from Perth, Australia with her two kids so a busy weekend ahead. I knew that if i do what i normally do, bake on monday, i'd end up not participating as i'd get too carried away showing my cousin the sights. I thought i'd better get my skates on and get down to baking and CEIMB on the one day i had.




It all went together very easily and didn't take very long at all. I obviously don't pay any attention to what pan or pan size i'm supposed to use. The batter overflowed in the oven, a lot! It didn't make a very pretty loaf but it tasted very good. I tried it once it cooled down and there was a very strong taste of ginger, more like gingerbread. The ginger toned down the next day and you could really taste all the other flavours. It was a big hit, tasty and really moist.



Thanks for a great pick Kelly. Please check out her site here for the recipe.

The overflowing happened to me last weekend, although it was not with this recipe but with next weeks chipster-topped brownie: disaster!! I also undercooked them... :(

Sorry yours overflowed. That always feels like such a disaster when it's happening, but your cubes of mango bread look delicious!

love that you cut yours into little bite sized cubes to serve it. Wasn't it delicious? We loved it. Of course, I love mangoes. :)

I think yours looks very tasty! I love the cubes, they actually made me think about making mango bread pudding... What do you think?

This look great! My went really high but didn't overflow...came very close though! Your bite size pieces are fantastic.

I can't believe you were able to get 2 cups from 1 mango - that must have been a big mango!

I love the bite size portions of your mango bread - although that probably wouldn't stop me from eating A LOT of those bite size pieces! =)

As long as it tastes good. Are you going to use your little cubes for trifle. Bet it would be good.

Those little cubes of mango bread look a bit too pop-able - deadly!
