A lovely, moist loaf with a winning combination of flavours. However, based on the amount of flour used, next time I would bake it as one big loaf rather than two smaller ones.

WOW!!! This was my last thing to make during the ZWT3 Game - and WHAT a fabulous end to a terrific FOODIE TOUR. My team mate ~Rita~ has come up with another incredibly delicious and different winner with this recipe!! This is my favorite of all of my "Family Picks" during this last leg of the Tour. The blends of spices are AMAZING...a wonderful fragrant and tasty array of sweet heat. The mango and macadamia nut are fabulous flavor playmates. I made one small change and used applesauce in place of the oil and my bread was still super moist from all the natural juice...I LOVED this special taste of the Caribbean on a sweltering July day in NJ!!! (...I got up and got it into the oven early to beat the heat and to be able to enjoy it with a light salad dinner) - I only have one real loaf pan, but recently received a set of mini-pans as a gift so, I christened 2 of these in with this fabulous recipe!! I got one regular and 2 minis from the batter; all 3 were perfectly golden, fat and lovely!! The mini loafs will go out tomorrow as gifts that I will be proud to credit as inspired by the wonderful recipe creations of ~Rita~ - discovered while playing in the exciting Tour Game!!...OH!!!...DO not forget a "fat pinch" of the cayenne it is remarkable with the other stunning spices!!! Thanks so much for another great recipe from one of my favorite ZAAR sisters!!! **Way to think "out of the pan"!!**

Moist and a superb blend of flavours, both from the spices and the fruit. I made a few changes: I omitted the cayenne pepper, reduced the sugar (I used brown sugar) to 1 cup (personal taste preferences), omitted the vegetable oil and added instead 1/2 cup of mashed banana (a substitution that I found worked really well with another recipe) to the 2 cups of mangoes. A highly adaptable and yummy recipe. I'll be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
