Help, my hard drive was attacked by computer gremlins! For the life of me, I can't seem to locate my mango bread photos. Sorry, this lone photo is all I have to share. I'm bummed! :(
Mango Bread is this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe. Aside from eating mangos fresh or sipping a mango-rita (man, I could use one of those right now), I've never baked with this fruit. I was very interested to see how this would turn out.
I followed this quick bread recipe as written, and my only addition was topping the loaf with a lime glaze that was made with 2 tbsp lime juice (using the zested lime) and 1 C. powdered sugar.
The texture of the loaf was nice and moist, and I enjoyed the chunks of diced fruit. Even after giving the loaf a couple of days to let the flavors mature, I was a little underwhelmed with the flavor of the bread, . I was anticipating great fruit flavor from the mango and lime, but it was much more subtle than I expected.
Such a bummer...I had high hopes for this recipe. Then again, it could just be me. The hubs took the loaf to work, and he shared that it was happliy gobbled up by his co-workers.
Thanks Kelly of Baking with the Boys for this week's selection. Please visit Kelly's blog for the full recipe.
I'm curious to see how the other TWD bakers fared with this recipe. If you're curious like I am, make sure to visit the TWD blogroll.
