Full flavoured mango bread, a definite must for mango lovers. Mango Bread is a type of sweet bread made with fresh mangoes, dried mangoes, walnuts and cinnamon.
Mangoes is my favourite fruit, if I can put it in anything I would, but not all mangoes are created equal definitely the best ones are the ones from the Philippines. Champagne Mango or Carabao Mango is the cultivar and this types of mango is one of the sweetest variety, it also has a velvety smooth texture with almost no fibres. Back in the Philippines we have this on a regular basis but moving to New Zealand its very rare to have them, first it is imported on a seasonal basis, they are quite expensive at cheapest its NZ$5.00 a pop and if it is in the country they sell out really fast, luckily I got hold of them recently and made this recipe.
This mango bread is similar to any sweet breads and most closely related to fruit breads like banana bread , a simple recipe that brings Philippine mangoes, dried mangoes, cinnamon, and walnuts into perfect harmony. Quite a most bread, no kneading needed or waiting for the dough to rise, all you need to do is mix then bake and what awaits you is the most mangoey bread you will ever try. While it’s tempting to eat them just right after baking, it is best to let it stay for a couple of days before devouring them as it gets better day by day, the flavours just intensifies. It’s great to serve with tea or coffee for a nice snack!
Love dried mangoes from the Filipines. My ex-chef always bought a case for us to share when he visited the company. And I had the best mangoes when I was in Manila. Your mango quick bread looks great with the extra mango puree (I guess?)
We are a big mango fans, as well. The only dried mangoes I’ve ever had are the ones we get in New Mexico that are coated with chili powder. (They are really good!) I have to check out other dried mangoes… Beautiful bread!
I love mango but never had it in bread. I did see them selling mango sandwiches once, one thick slice of the fruit in the sandwich but they never make it again. No chance to try!
yummmmmm I think I would prefer this over banana bread! Great photos!
Wow, this looks phenomenal and sounds so tasty. It never occurred to me you could make mango bread, so thank you for introducing this recipe!
What a luscious treat! Banana bread had better watch out; this one could easily steal the top spot on my baking rotation.
