Kelly of Baking with the Boys has chosen fresh mango bread for TWD this week. And the timing couldn't have been more perfect, as May is the season for alphonso mango from India!
I was first introduced to this extremely sweet and juicy mango when I went to India in 2005 and I was instantly hooked on it. That was the best mango I've tasted so far. Imagine my delight when I discovered that local supermarkets started to stock up on alphonso mango about two weeks ago, and since then, I've been having them almost everyday.
This is my first time using mango in baking and it certainly won't be my last! The mango bread is delicious, but I find that the ground ginger is slightly overpowering. I will reduce the amount if I were to bake it again. This is a great recipe and I really like the bread, but I only had half a slice because I really need to lose some weight. My hubby brought it to the office the next day and his colleagues like it too!
Head over to Kelly's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!
