Mango bread combines the yumminess of mangoes and the awesomeness of bread! This mango bread is full of deliciousness!
Today is the fifth day in the week long Mango Festival on the blog. We have seen a mango salsa, a mango cheese cake, raw mango chutney and mango pancakes, but we have stayed away from baking till now and knowing me its a huge surprise, isn’t it? 🙂 So today we present to you the mango bread – my first mango bake of this season and a yummy one too :D.
Doesn’t it look yummy? It surely did taste yummy. In the original recipe, she has used a lot of butter which I have replaced with oil. So if you want to use butter, please go ahead and get the lovely brown color she has for her bread. I just got scared of using too much butter 😛 The bread was tasty nonetheless and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. I cut my mangoes chunkier but I think finely chopped would have tasted much better.
The best thing about doing this marathon is that I am getting to make so much of delicious stuff with mangoes. I have realised mangoes are so versatile, aren’t they? Whether they are raw or ripe, they can be used in so many different things! Each part of India has a special recipe, isn’t it? Whether it is the aam ka achar from Punjab or the vaadu mangai from Tamil Nadu or the chundo from Gujarat, each is unique and special in its own way!
We all have recipes which we have learnt from our mothers or grandmothers and adapted it to suit our taste buds 🙂 That is what I love about food. How it changes its look and feel over the generations, and yet there is a commonality between recipes across generations! Before I go rambling on about food, here is the recipe to some delicious mango bread.
