mango bread ~

Have I ever said I loooooove mangoes? I think I have. :)

I have been meaning to try Wandering Chopsticks' Mango Bread recipe for a long time, and just got the chance to do it today; I've been feeling kind of virus-y and stayed home from work yesterday and today, and that bed is driving me crazy (although after I type this, I'll be back in it). So I threw this together as I am cooking rice for lunch. Keeping it simple today, and those mangoes needed using anyway

As usual, I can't leave recipes alone, and tweak at will, so my version is a bit different from WC's, and she tweaked hers from several recipes to begin with, LOL. Anyway - it's baking right now, and I'll post a photo later on after it's been sampled (done!). I can tell you the batter tasted wonderful already. :)

Mango Bread
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
1/2 cup melted butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 mangoes, peeled and diced
3/4 cup chopped or broken pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare 2 standard size loaf pans with baking spray. In a mixer, blend on low speed the flour, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Add coconut milk and melted butter, and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, with mixer running, and then add vanilla. Remove from mixer and fold in mangoes and pecans with a spoon. Divide evenly between the loaf pans and bake for 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from loaf pans onto a wire rack.
