Tossing this mess in the trash. I'm an experienced baker, made this by the recipe. I use a commercial grade baking spray that has NEVER failed before. This recipe was too much volume for the size of pan suggested. Would not release from the pan and even though all the ingredients were fresh the finished bread stinks.
A very nice, not-too-sweet treat (with my tweaks)! I replaced 1/2 cup of the oil and about 3/4 cup of the chopped mango with 3 small mashed bananas (I needed to use them up and it helped cut down on the fat). I used half all-purpose and half WW flour. And I used slightly less than 1 cup of sugar instead of the total amount. Made it into muffins instead of a loaf. Loved them!
This is a really nice quick bread Chilicat. I enjoyed it very much. It was big, thick, dense, flavorful, spicy, nutty and fruity. I loved that you could taste all the individual ingredients. You had me with the cinnamon, coconut and mango. I added halved macadamia nuts to the batter, it was so tasty! I will be making this often, thanks so much for sharing.
