This is the perfect dessert to have in your back pocket when planning a luncheon or having friends over. The mangoes give the bread a moist texture, and the nuts add the extra crunch needed. The best thing is that it only takes 15 min to prepare! Serve it with vanilla ice cream or cream cheese on top, or even just on its own, and you have quite the impressive dish. It's so good, your friends won't even guess that its gluten free!

Very Bitter after taste, way too much baking powder ..3 teaspoons to 1cup of flour, ruined my mangos!

I found this to be a delightful bread. Super moist and not overly sweet.<br/>I added 1/2 tsp of Xantham gum and made the rest as per the recipe. <br/>I had to watch it towards the end of the baking time as it was getting quite brown. Some people may find they have to cover the top with baking paper<br/>Will make it again, but I think it needs something extra to lift the flavors.

My daughter and I just made this and give this two thumbs up! Not too sweet, we love that there is more fruit than flour & it's so moist.
