This week’s recipe for Mango Bread was chosen by Kelly of Baking with the Boys. Since we are not really mango fans, I decided to go ahead with the TwD recipe and just make some drastic changes! I was actually not going to make this recipe, but since I flubbed last week’s tart, I figured I would at least attempt something using the basic ingredients and method from Dorie’s recipe and just substitute the mango for other tropical fruits and flavors.

Here is what I did:
1.) I chopped two 8 ounce cans of pineapple and drained them very well; squeezing the juice through cheese cloth.
2.) Folded in 2 mashed bananas and 2/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut.
3.) Added 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
4.) Baked in mini loaves.
This resulted in some damn good bread, it was a little sweet, so next time I will cut back on the sugar due to the added fruit and coconut. the breadbaked up beautifully in the mini loaf pans and tasted amazing when slathered with a pat of butter! I will definitely make this recipe again! Head over to the TwD site to check out more versions of this tropical treat!

    Great subs to a great loaf. This is a great basic loaf and I can imagine it would go perfectly with lots of fruits – like yours.

    Lovely loaf.
