This is a really easy recipe for mango bread, from A Taste of Hawaii Cookbook. The toughest thing about this recipe is cutting up the mangoes. Great mango flavor! I love the crunch of the macadamia nuts and walnuts. Enjoy!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts, broken into pieces
- 3⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups ripe mangoes, cut into small cubes
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Form a well in the center of the mixture and add the sugar, eggs, macadamia nuts, walnuts and the oil. Add mango and slowly incorporate into the flour mixture.
- Pour this mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Let cool. Slice and eat!
I used 2 fresh mangoes and this turned out great. My oven and I are still on a learning curve so there was a wet patch in the middle but this is not at all due to the recipe. I made a round loaf and enjoyed it with butter. This was a most enjoyable way to eat mangoes and such a change from my usual banana or carrot cakes.
Wonderful recipe! Flavorful, not too sweet, loved the macadamias and walnuts in this. I used applesauce in place of the oil with excellent results. I baked mine in 4 mini ceramic loaf pans for the 45 minutes specified. Great bread - thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is so easy to make, and so moist and delicious! I had to use canned mango, as fresh aren't available right now, but apart from that I made it exactly as posted! I don't think the canned mango made any real difference, as there was still a beautiful mango flavour. I just loved it! [Made for PRMR]
