Gluten-Free Moist Mango and Nut Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by gluten-free-me

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!

Did you really mean only 1 cup of flour? The bread turned out very wet, not just moist. I am so disappointed I wasted my time and ingredients. Also, you should say "ripe" not "raw" mangoes. I used 2 ripe mangoes but it seems like the ratio of flour and liquid from the mangoes is not correct. Please try your recipes before publishing them.
