TWD- Fresh Mango Bread

Well, I’ll admit that the only reason I made this was because my husband LOVES mangoes. Seriously, LOVES them. I’m not a fan, and since I have pregnancy taste buds, mango tastes like carbon paper to me. This is a quick and easy bread that comes together in minutes- the baking time is quite long. I underbaked mine so it was a little loose on top.
The mango flavor wasn’t really all the present in mine. The ginger overpowered everything- if I ever make it again, I will cut the ginger way down or omit it completely. I also made mine without the raisins. It’s definitely worth a try- a departure from the regular banana or zucchini bread! My husband and our friends enjoyed the bread- it was moist and flavorful.

    I loved the ginger and used a generous hand when I measured it out. Sorry you don’t like it! The mango was pretty faint, though.

    I’m not pregnant, but I thought the same as you — this tasted more like a spice bread versus a fruit bread. I’m glad that the hubby and friends enjoyed it, as yours looks delicious!

    Um…did I miss the post where you said you were PREGNANT??!? CONGRATULATIONS! I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy your lovely looking bread, but I’m glad your hubs did. Feel good and take care!

    I liked this one but I agree about the ginger – it’s the first thing that my husband pointed out when he tasted it.

    Guess the flavor would depend on the fruit. Mine was a little mango bland, but spicy to taste. And I added ginger. Yours looks perfect.

    Sorry it was more like ginger-mango bread for you, but you’re a good wife for making it for your hubby all the same!
