Mango Spice Banana Bread. A different mango and spice twist on a traditional banana bread. A great addition to packed lunches or as an afternoon snack. Makes a terrific bake sale contribution too.
Spice banana bread is pretty delicious but bow about a different mango twist on a traditional banana bread? A great addition to packed lunches or as an afternoon snack. Makes a terrific bake sale contribution too.
Necessity was again the mother of invention when it came to this new version of Banana Bread. I’m not sure why Spouse keeps buying so many bananas when they never seem to all get eaten before they start to get over ripe.
This time a sweet, very ripe mango shared the bottom of the fruit bowl with the bananas. First, I figured I’d make spice muffins with the mango and banana bread with the bananas but then it occurred to me, “Why not combine the two?” The result was really delicious and well worth trying.
Make sure you dice the mango quite small (under 1/2 inch), especially of it is very ripe, to make sure the mango pieces stay evenly distributed in the batter. This is my new favourite banana bread. These flavours really do go together exceptionally well.
