I am posting this in response for a request on the boards for a recipe to use up some mangoes. I made this yesterday, but the original recipe had way too much sugar, so I've adjusted the recipe to the way I will make it in the future.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 eggs, well beaten
- 3⁄4 cup sugar (1 cup may be used if mangoes are not very ripe)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 mangoes, peeled and diced
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts or 1⁄2 cup raisins (optional)
- Combine flour and soda, whisking together.
- Form well in center.
- Place well beaten eggs in well and with a spoon mix well.
- Stir in remaining ingredients and pour into greased breadpan.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
- Turn out onto cooling rack.
- Cool to room temperature, then slice and serve.
i had 2 very ripe mangoes which i used, and the amount of sugar 3/4c was just fine. this made a moist fruity loaf. i did use chopped walnuts but omitted the raisins. i made this in a fancy nordicware loaf pan, so it had a nice design, and sprinkled the top with some confectioners sugar. delicious dessert, thanks cindy lynn
I can't thank you enough for posting this awesome mango bread recipe. Finally, my dream of baking my own mango bread and eating a little came true today!!! All thanks to YOU! I got around to baking this at 4 in the afternoon in my AMC Dutch Oven and it was ready by 5:10pm. I used 1 cup of sugar as one of my mangoes was not fully ripe. I did use 1/2 cup raisins and 1/4 cup black walnuts. This made a beautiful huge loaf and I shared it with my closest friends' this evening for Best Friend's Day! Nothing could be more sweet to share with the sweetest of people than this "really GOOD" bread. I wish I could give you 15 more stars! UPDATE: I took this to my family doc yday! He didn't charge me even a single $ ;) Guess you should rename this bread "Mystical Magical Mango Bread With A Secret Charm!" ;)
I love this recipe and make it whenever I get a glut of mangoes to use up. I also add 1/2 cup shredded coconut to the mixture and sprinkle additional coconut on top before baking. It is definitely a keeper!
