TWD: Mango Bread

I owe Kelly of Baking With the Boys a huge apology and a huge thank you. When I first saw that she chose mango bread I kind of brushed it off. I love mangoes but Alex doesn't. I thought this recipe would bomb in our house and I even considered not making it. But because Alex's family is in town and I know they like mangoes I decided to make the bread and give it to them. I halved the recipe and had enough batter for 3 mini loaves. I gave two of the loaves to his family and kept one for myself. I sliced up my loaf I and served it for breakfast and Alex actually liked it. I think he was just as surprised as I was. The bread didn't taste like mango, but it didn't taste like a regular sweet bread either. The bread tasted of the spices with a dash of tropical sweetness. So, Kelly I'm sorry that I thought this recipe would bomb and thank you for giving me something mango-ish that Alex actually liked.

Don't forget to check Kelly's blog for the recipe and the TWD site to see how the other bakers fared this week.

The bread had such a beautiful golden colorDelicious.

I was not going to make the recipe either, for I too, don't like mangoes... but because with this group I decide to push my limits... I made it, ate it and loved it! Dah!

I'm glad Alex liked it too... and sorry at the same time you got half of your wonderfully good looking mini loaf stolen! LOL

But then again... everything is soooo much better, when shared, isn't it?

Your pictures are particularly beautiful, Stephanie!
