Mango Bread




















I have never heard of Mango bread before this week. I wasn't sure what to expect. Would it taste good? Was is a moist, tropical bread or more of a coffee cake? It had lots of cinnamon, ginger and lime zest in addition to the mangoes. I think it would have tasted better with out the cinnamon. I had a hard time getting the center of the bread completely cooked. It took over the 1 1/4 hours mentioned in the recipe. I also found it needed a lime glaze for a little extra flavour. I shared it with my Bible Study. I don't think I will try this recipe again. It wasn't great and a little on the dry side. I think I should have measured my mangoes a little better instead of guessing how many cups I added. I don't think I had quite enough. Thanks to Kelly of Baking with the Boys for choosing this recipe. Don't forget to visit the TWD Blogroll to see what everyone else did!

Wow, a lime icing too! Sounds like a good idea to bring out the lime. Sorry you didn't like it, your mango bread looks fabulous!

Well at least it was a pretty bread to take. Lime glaze...yum! Beautiful plate you have there too.

I'm sorry you didn't like it -- it was very popular here. The lime glaze looks like a great addition, though.

The icing was a nice touch. I am sorry it wasn't what you hoped for though.

Weird, I thought it was incredibly moist - wonder if it's the mango being used? The lime glaze sounds fabulous.
