A traditional mango nut loaf with coconut and flavored with cinnamon. This is from "A Hundred Years of Island Cooking", an old cookbook from the Hawaiian Electric Company.

- Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

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.
