Fresh Mango Bread - Tuesdays with Dorie

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Food Librarian - Fresh Mango Bread
Fresh Mango Bread. Deliciousness in a carb.

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Kelly of Baking with the Boys selected Fresh Mango Bread on page 45 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I love mangos! Plain mangos. Mangos with chili pepper. Mango lassi. Oh yes, I heart mango!

Food Librarian - Fresh Mango Bread
I cut the bread into little pieces to make it easier for my co-workers to grab a bite. The pottery is my platter from Gary Holt Pottery in Berkeley, California (see this for more info).

This recipe took 2 1/2 small mangos to get the right amount of diced mango. The bread was very very easy to mix and put together. I skipped the raisins and went all mango, all the time.

Food Librarian - Fresh Mango Bread
While baking, I thought the bread would overflow out of the pan! It really doomed up...but then fell while cooling. That happens a lot with my breads...they are such a tease in the oven.

Food Librarian - Fresh Mango Bread
The bread had a nice blend of spices, and the fresh mango was delicious. Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers! You can find the recipe on Kelly's website Baking with the Boys or buy Dorie's great book!
Pin It!

I love mangoes too!! I almost didn't want to add it into the bread and eat the whole thing myself. I love the crust you got on your bread. it looks really good.

It looks delicios and I love the platter it's on, too. I skipped the raisins, they just didn't seem right to me. Wonderful job.

ooo this looks great! is it really sweet from the mango?

Linda said... [Reply to comment]

I love mangos too, but this recipe didn't win me over. Your mention of a mango lassi is making me crave one right now - looks like i'm going out for Indian food tonite!

BTW, have to mention again, I love your plate --- so perfect so showcase your beautiful loaf.

Your mango bread looks fantastic. And I love the platter too.

I'm glad to know that the bread settles down eventually. I just put mine in the oven about 30 min ago and it looks like it's ready to explode with an hour to go!
It looks delicious and I love the way that you cut it into slices for easy grabbing.

What a beautiful bread tray! (I know that's not what I'm supposed to be looking at...) It's interesting that our breads all look different...I cut my mango into tiny dice and it disappeared. Yours is so pretty with those golden chunks!

Looks delicious!

Glad to see that two of my favorite things - mangoes and that fabulous platter - are the stars of the show.

WOW! Love the service plate... It carries somekind of ressemblance with the bread even! The edges are very similar! ...okay, no, I'm not high... just very visual, whimsical and imaginative! LOL But I hold my point of vue... they look similar.

And oh! Yes... the bread looks wonderful! of course, as usual! LOL

This bread looks absolutely fabulous! Yay for Berkeley; that's where I live :) Hmmm, I wish I could reach into the computer and grab a slice of this magnificent bread!

Rachel said... [Reply to comment]

It is mango season in India and they don't last once bought home to go into a bread as wondeful as this!

Judy said... [Reply to comment]

The bread looks delicious, and I Love the platter. The pottery store sounds like a dangerous place!

Sur La Table has another shape, too (look under Bundt pans!) I collected four different ones...from different stores - I love them! And they work beautifully!

I'm probably weird (probably? definitely!) but I LOVE the crusty edges when it overruns the pan. I'm glad you went 100% mango for this one and loved it.

Peggy said... [Reply to comment]

Great bread and I love love love your dish that you have it photographed in! I guess you and I share the love of mangoes. . .

Di said... [Reply to comment]

Looks good! And I still have serious platter envy... =)

Maria said... [Reply to comment]

The bread looks fantastic!

Gabe's Girl said... [Reply to comment]

I love the way your bread has curly side tops. I hope that makes sense. Very nicely presented. Once again, coworkers benefit from TWD.

Clivia said... [Reply to comment]

Your bread is picture perfect! Well done.

Mermaid Sweets said... [Reply to comment]

Wow, what great photos, and I am so going to that place in Berkeley. Next time you come to SF let me know!

Rebekka said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, I am so jealous! I used to to TWD and I really miss it. This looks super good. I am jealous you are in LA..so much great food there!

lasinthekitchen said... [Reply to comment]

Your mango bread looks fantastic, especially on the platter! I love mangoes too! Next time I'm ditching the raisins and going all mango too.

Karen said... [Reply to comment]

mmmm this looks delicious! I made muffins and took some to my coworkers as well. Great recipe!

Carol Peterman said... [Reply to comment]

Your bread looks great. I had a lot of batter hit the oven floor while baking. What stayed in the pan was so delicious!

Liz said... [Reply to comment]

All mango, all the time! Holla! LOVE the dish, by the way--I can't decide which is prettier, the bread or the platter. :)

Nancy/n.o.e said... [Reply to comment]

Oooh, beautiful version with all mango. Just lovely. And perfect presentation.

spike. said... [Reply to comment]

looks beautiful (mine sank a bit). mmm, now I'm thinking about mango lassis

PheMom said... [Reply to comment]

That all looks so wonderful! My bread did the same thing so I guess my oven is a tease as well!
