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!

The winner of my Brownie Fun Giveaway is Michelle of Something New is Cooking…Congratulations, Michelle!!!

    Your mini-loaves look soo cute and tasty! I think the mini-loaves turn out better than the regular sized loaf.

    Congrats to Michelle! I love the changes that you made to this bread. It’s fabulous. Of course, my favorite part is your addition of the pineapple and coconut. Man oh man, I bet that added SUPER flavor. I can’t wait to try out your version of this bread.

  3. Ingrid says:

    I have to admit that your bread looks and sounds so much better than the regular bread. Not that I don’t like mangos but spiced bread with mangos thrown in just doesn’t do it for me.

    Congrats to the winner!

    Wow, those flavors sound great together! I am definitely going to try this combination :) Your mini loaf looks beautiful

  5. Katrina says:

    What awesome flavor combinations! Seriously, I need to try this. I love everything banana. Great subs for the mango (which I would not put in a bread again myself.)

    Great substitutes!

    I just made a bannana, coconut and pineapple bread from a new hawaiian cookbook I got, and it was a super flop – the recipe called for 1/2 tbsp salt, and I went with it despite my hesitations – WRONG. Otherwise, I think it would be a good combo.

  9. Jennifer says:

    Your substitutions sound great. I added coconut in mine, too, and liked it but did feel it overpowered the mango a bit (of course, I was short on mango, so that was a factor, too.)

    Oh wow, this sounds SO good. I made banana bread last weekend, but now I wish I had had this recipe then!
