PREP TIME: 20 Minutes | COOK TIME: 40 Minutes Plus Cooling Time
2 medium mangoes, very ripe and soft (peeled, and pitted)*
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg (slightly beaten)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
* 1 1/2 mangoes pureed and 1/2 mango diced
Makes 10 servings
To prepare batter, in a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar. Add the mango puree, egg, vanilla and lime juice.
In a separate large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Add the mango mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Stir in the walnuts and diced mango.
To bake the mango bread, preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x5x3 inch pan with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing from the loaf pan. Allow to cool for 1 hour on a rack before serving.
