TWD: Fresh Mango Bread


Let me start off by saying that I am so glad I didn't miss this week! This week's pick was made by Kelly of Baking with the Boys. It was a great pick by Kelly, everyone seemed to love it! I made lots of changes and I'm glad I did because it turned out really well.

I wasn't too wild about adding raisins so instead I added coconut. I also decided to add a cup of macadamia nuts because I thought that the crunch of the nuts would be a nice contrast to the soft mango. I left out the ginger and only used half the amount of cinnamon. I ended up with two loaves because I was afraid that the batter would be too much for one pan. It works out better this way anyways because now I can give one away and so that means less for me to eat! Which is a good thing since summer is right around the corner.

Go check out Kelly's site for the yummy recipe and check out what other bakers have done this week.

I think adding coconut sounds much better than raisins. Your bread looks delicious.

I bet the coconut added just the right tropical flavor.

I put cinnamon chips in instead of raisins.

So glad this one was a winner for you! I tweaked it some and it was exactly what I hoped it would be.

My husband simply loves mango...he would be thrilled to kick back and eat a big hunk of this bread.

It seems like a lot of TWDers added or subbed coconut. It never occurred to me, probably because I'm not a fan of either! Your bread looks really tasty and I loved this bread! (except for the raisins...)
