Mango Bread | Pink Wings
We came across a few amazing produce stands on our way back from Monterey last weekend so we went a little crazy and got more than we could really eat. So I had a couple of overripe mangoes and decided to make them into mini bread loaves. Called up my Momma to get her zucchini bread recipe that I love and it worked perfect with the mangoes. Nomnomnom.

Rating: 9/10
Why: It's super moist just like Momma's, but I wish the mango flavor came out a bit more. Next time I will chop half of the mangoes instead of smashing them so that I have mango chunks in the bread.



Mango Bread
Makes 3 mini loaves


  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-1.5 cups mango, smashed


Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease your loaf pans.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, then the mango. Stir well.
Pour in the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Fill pans 2/3 full and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool.

  4. I love zucchini bread, but I never thought to try it with mangos which are pretty much my favorite. I have to try this!

    1. If you do, definitely try chopping half of the mangoes. I love mango too so I think mango chunks would maximize the flavor.

  5. I love mangoes! We have them in them in the house year round, green ones to make curry and ripened ones to snack on. This recipe was the perfect excuse to bake with my favorite fruit. I pureed half the mango and then left the other half in chunks and it was perfect. Thanks for an amazing recipe!
