I make lots of these during mango season and give away to friends and family. It's great for breakfast or afternoon snack! Sometimes I even stick it in the toaster for a different texture.

Mmmmmm, yummy! This is definitely a keeper! I have LOTS of homegrown mangoes and tried this recipe to use a bunch that had fallen really ripe. Wow! I made a large loaf and only six muffins. I did use a bit more lemon than called for. Next time, I will try what other reviewers suggested and substitute plain (homemade!) yogurt for part of the oil and will reduce the sugar somewhat. Thanks, Grace Lynn!
Absolutely delicious! I've tried a lot of mango bread recipes and this one beats them all. I checked my bread after 45 minutes and it was already done -- after I took it out of the pan and cooled it on the wire rack, I wrapped it up and served it the next day (I think all quick breads taste better the day after they're made). Well, it only lasted about 10 minutes. Everyone went back for seconds (and thirds). Really moist, without being too dense, and held together without a lot of crumbs. Great recipe!!
My friend left some mango slices here after house sitting for us, so thought I'd do her a favor and make some mango bread out of it. I don't care for mangos at all - but this bread is very good. There's enough flavor from all the ingredients and I chopped up the mango in a processor, so it is very subtle in flavor. YUMMY. This is a very easy recipe. Instead of making 2 loaves, I made 1 loaf and 12 muffins. They turned out beautifully. I'm sure my friend is going to LOVE it! Thanks for posting! Update: It's almost 1 month later and my friend is still raving over this bread! It's a definite keeper!
