Care to Mango?

Lately I've been cheating...on my favorite fruits. Bananas, grapes, and every type of berry are consistently being passed over for the sweet, perfumed mango. So soft, so juicy, so gosh darn tropical, how could I resist! Needless to say, I was thrilled with Kelly's pick for Tuesdays With Dorie, Fresh Mango Bread.
This simple quick bread recipe is easy on your pantry and your budget. I only had to buy the mango which was on sale at my local market. And it's easy on your dishwasher too- you've gotta love a recipe that comes together with two bowls, a whisk and a spoon. I followed Dorie's recipe to the letter, except for the addition of a 1/4 teaspoon of coriander, and while I usually make mini's this time I chose to go with the full loaf.

Sorry berries, I'm with mango now.

Yours looks great! Love how all the pieces of mango came through the crust.

That looks yummy. I didn't think to add coriander. That would have been good.

Every one is so in love with Mangoes. I just bought another one to eat on it's own. I've had them before but I remember not being so crazy about 'em. I guess it's time to give them another try. Great job on the bread, it's lovely!

I spurned my apples and grapes for mango too - I think it was worth it :)
