Maddog's Mango Coconut Bread

"This is delicious as a dessert served with ice cream (coconut or mango ;-) or as a deliciously sweet bread for breakfast with coffee, as a side with a salad for lunch. Or go completely wild and have it with a hot rum tody for tea time! It is a blast of the tropics worth going out in the mid-day sun for!"

    Tasty as! I halved the recipe for a single loaf tin. Also added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract to the mix. Just baked it and tasted it warm from the oven. Very chuffed with the results :)

    I'm rating 5 in anticpation, lol. So, I just put my version in the oven. I used a bundt pan, I add 1 can of drained pineapple tidbits and 1 cup of chopped pecans. I just thought, coconut, pineapple and pecans sounded like a good combination....stay tuned, I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Very moist, tasty and fluffy. Coconut is nice touch. Great soaked in rum!

    Absolutely beautiful! My family loves mangos and coconuts, so this hit the spot for them. I used 1/2 lb butter and substitute coconut milk for the rest. It gave a moist, coconut flavor. Thank you for this recipe.

    This was absolutely wonderful. More than 5 stars. Very moist and I substituted 1/2 the butter for apple sauce - just so I felt better eating it! This is really worth trying.
