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!
- 2 C All Purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 C Sugar
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ C Regular Butter, melted
- ¼ C Oil
- 2 Ripe Mangoes, finely chopped (or chunks if you prefer) (about 4 cups)
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- Sift flour into a large bowl. Add baking soda, sugar and cinnamon and stir the dry ingredients to combine.
- In a medium bowl, beat eggs, add vanilla extract, melted butter and oil. Combine the ingredients and add to dry ingredients.
- Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon stir to combine the wet and dry ingredients. Fold in the finely chopped mangoes.
- Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 55 – 60 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan and cool on cooling rack.
lovely bread! If I had some mangoes, I don’t think they ever would turn into any creation like yours because I’m totally sucker of mango!! 😀
cake looks too good,.
mango? it’s just one flavor i almost never use…not sure why. the bread sounds delicous toasted with butter-yum. the lighting on your pictures looks awesome! what program do you use to make the pictures into 4? not that i need any new projects, but i love the way it looks…
have a great week,
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!!
Wow. Love this. I love mango and never even thought to pair it into a bread. What a great idea-can’t wait to try this.
I love making mango bread. It’s the only way I’ll eat mangoes. Yours has such a wonderful color and crumb.
Sweet enough that you don’t need any jam for this bread. Maybe just a pat of butter and a cup ‘o tea. 🙂
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! 🙂
Never thought of mango bread! Love them as is, in salads and, my favorite, mango martinis 🙂 But I’ll definitely have to try them in a bread with a nice cup of warm tea, mmmm.
Priscilla – having them just is – is one of my favorite ways….although a mango martini sounds pretty irresitable! 🙂
You should enter your Mango bread in the fair. You would win with this unique recipe! (I know cause the judges didn’t like the breads entered this year).
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?
i love bread, i love mangos – i’ve never thought of the two together! i bet i’d love it. will repost on my facebook fan page….looking forward to meeting you @ foodbuzz this year!
Hi Lynn!! Thank you for reposting on your Facebook fan page. I’m looking forward to meeting you soon too!! Take care!
what a great idea! Gorgeous photos too!
Thank you Florentina!!
Yum. I have never thought of using mango in a bread. Great
I made it today though I didnt get the color as pretty as urs but nonetheless the taste was awesome
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.
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!
Lynne: Mangoes for 39 cents!!! What a steal! I would probably make mango everything! 🙂
Nice…heading to the kitchen as I type!
William H. Stoneman: Yay!
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!
it’s so nice!i’d will try this recipes!!!
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!!
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???
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! 🙂
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!
