Wow.... this is to die for. Very moist and lovely flavor. So much better than plain old banana bread.This gem goes directly to my favorite bread reicpes. Made for I reviewed recipe tag.
What a neat way to use mango! I really liked this bread. I grinded my own whole wheat from hard red wheat berries and used apple juice instead of orange, other than that, I followed the recipe as indicated. I would have liked a few more nuts myself. I was impressed at how the mango turned out in the bread, although the taste of the mango wasn't really noticeable.
Originally rated on 5/21/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. LOVE this bread. Wow. Such a delicious combination of flavors. I used roasted, salted macadamia nuts. I had one small slice and I'm using every bit of self-control to not go back into the kitchen for more. The bread is moist and flavorful, with hints of tropical flavors AND a slight crunch,due to the macadamias. Fantastic. Try this! ~Made for ZWT5 - Epicurean Queens~
