I have to say that initially I wasn't very excited about this week's choice. After all of the really decadent things we've been making lately, this just kind of seemed like a buzz kill. Bread? Mango Bread?
But the more I thought about it, the more excited I got. I'm still recovering from all the travel, so something simple might be a nice break. I love mango (but hate working with it...that weird pit and everything). So I just embraced it.
This is a cinch to put together. No appliances required and the only labor intensive task is peeling and de-pitting the damn mango. I'm so buying one of those little gadgets that takes the guess work out.
I loved the spices in this....freshly grated ginger and cinnamon. They really went well with the mango. I left out the raisins (not a fan) and substituted about a 1/2 cup of coconut. Delish.
Spork or Foon suggest making this into French Toast and it looks yummy, so I may try that with some of it.
Thanks to Kelly of Baking with the Boys for picking this week. Head over to her site for the recipe.
