Mango Bread

mango bread

I had a couple ripe mangoes on hand and decided to bake mango bread this weekend.  This bread is super moist, easy to make and the mangoes are a colorful and tasty addition.  I like eating this for breakfast or for a quick snack.  It’s great as is…but I like to pop a slice into the toaster oven for a few minutes and then spread a tiny bit of butter on my piece…yum.   Chop the mangoes on the chunky side to get bright yellow-orange mango pieces floating throughout the bread.  Finely chopped mangoes will lend to a more flavor infused bread.  Either way it’s delicious.  Hope you enjoy it!

I chopped the mangoes a little on the chunky side, but finely chopped mangoes works great too.

    Sonia: I know what you mean! It’s hard to bake with mangoes when they are so good as is!! We had a bunch of ripe mangoes on the verge of going bad (we ate some and then I baked the rest) =)

    Notyet100: Thank you!!!

    Louise: Thank you!!! I use Adobe Elements for my photos. It’s very user friendly. There’s an option on there to make a collage. I use that function to group 4 pictures together for that shot. =) I hope that helps. Take care!!

    Naomi: I love mangoes too – in cakes, breads and of course as is. 🙂

    Lisa: Thank you!! When the recipe is so easy – it’s fun to whip of a loaf….or two!

    The Duo Dishes: Yes…definitely nice with a pat of butter and a nice warm cup of tea! 🙂

    Priscilla – having them just is – is one of my favorite ways….although a mango martini sounds pretty irresitable! 🙂

    Renee: Thank you for the suggestion! I’ve never entered anything into the fair – I’ll have to look into that for next year! 🙂 We’re you part of the judging panel for the bread competition this year?

    Jessica: Thank you!

    Monika: Yay!! Glad you tried the recipe and liked it!! Woothoo!! If you took a picture – I would love to see it! Take care and have a great day!

    I made this last night and brought it to work. Everyone voted that it did not taste like mangoes at all. The cinnamon overpowered the flavor of the mangoes. Next time I try it I am going to skip the cinnamon altogether.

  9. kitchenrunway says:

    Hi Betsy, sorry that the mango flavor didn’t come through for you. I should have specified how many cups of fresh ripe mangoes since mangoes vary in size. You’ll need about 4 cups of mangoes and all of the juice that the fruit yields. Thank you for trying the recipe and I look forward to hearing how it turns out with no cinnamon. Take care and have a wonderful day!

    thank you for posting this. One of our local grocery stores (Aldi’s) had mangoes for 39 cents each today, so I picked up two……….I am very excited about making this bread. Never in a million years would I have thought to put mango into a bread recipe. Thanks!

  11. kitchenrunway says:

    Lynne: Mangoes for 39 cents!!! What a steal! I would probably make mango everything! 🙂

  12. Lilianne says:

    Just tried this yesterday… It was so amazing!!! Only used half the cinnamon, and only had baking powder do used like 2T lol but it still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

  13. Lucie says:

    In the oven now…can’t wait to see how it comes out! I added about a 1/2 cup of walnuts to the recipe, and crumbled some finely chopped walnuts on top. mmm!!

  14. kitchenrunway says:

    Lilianne: Yay!! I’m so glad you liked it! Thank you for trying it!

    Shena: Thank you!

    Lucie: Woothoo! I like the addition of nuts in the bread and on top!

    Hello. I live in sunny South Miami Florida. We have plenty of mangos in the backyard now. From the tree to the oven, your mango bread is really good. I took some to work to share and everyone loved it. Thank you.

    Did you ever substitute apple sauce for the sugar and oil?????
    Any idea of the amount of apple sauce to use????? It just seems that the mangoes are so very sweet it is not necessary to add sugar… (and a cup??????)
    How about whole wheat flour???

  17. Tinystinabeana says:

    Thank you, for this recipe. I go by this one now. 🙂 @ Diane^ I’ve tried this recipe with whole wheat flour and it comes out great! 🙂

  18. Stefano says:

    Hi! I’ve just made my first ever attempt at baking. I’ve followed your recipe to the letter and the result was just dangerously scrummyliscious 🙂 Thank you very much for your recipe 🙂

    Hi, I made this the other day and it turned out brilliantly, even in my dodgy old oven! It’s definitely going to become a household staple from now on. Thank you! x

    PS: I used coconut oil as I didn’t have any vegetable oil, which has given it a lovely coconutty flavour too!

    Carol: I wished I had a mango tree in my backyard. I would be in heaven! I’m glad everyone at work enjoyed it! Yay! Thank you for trying the recipe!

    Diane: Yes, I have substituted apple sauce for oil in recipes, but I still use sugar (a bit less). The recipe calls for 1/4 c of oil, so sub for 1/4 c of apple sauce. The texture will be a bit different though. Looks like @Tinystiabeana substituted whole wheat flour and it turned out great!

    Stefano: Yay! Congratulations on your first attempt! I’m glad it was successful!

    Felicity: Thank you for trying the recipe! I’m glad it was a hit! Ohhhhh coconut oil sounds like a wonderful compliment to the mango! What a great substitute!
