Tuesdays with Dorie - Mango Bread


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.

  4. Lovely looking bread. I like the coconut. I added a little diced ginger and it boosted the flavor of this great little spicy bread. Yours sounds delish.
