TWD:FRESH MANGO BREAD

Kelly of Baking With The Boys chose this weeks TWD recipe; fresh mango bread.  I've recently become a fan of mangos and the best time to get them is right now; during the month of May. So all you mango lovers out there; head to the store and buy yourselves some juicy, sweet, super flavorful mangos. They are beyond delicious, and so was this bread.  

The recipe calls for 1 cut up mango, however I put in 2 because the mangos I bought were too good not to use.  After cutting them up a ton of mango juice surfaced which I ended up putting into the bread dough before baking. I think this kept the bread super moist with an extra blast of mango flavor. Raisins were the perfect compliment to this fruit-filled loaf.

Many thanks to Kelly for choosing this recipe and further heightening my mango-loving taste buds. Check out her site for the recipe!

Oooh yours looks perfect.

Almost makes me wish I hadn't eaten all the fruit and actually baked the bread.

Almost.

I think this recipe awakened a lot of us to appreciate mangoes. Your bread turned out perfect, and I think adding the juice was a smart way to keep the bread moist and increase the mango flavor.
