Step 1 - Select the Best Mangoes

Fresh mangoes are always best.

To make mango bread, pick two medium sized ripe mangoes from the tree or purchase fresh at the market. Squeeze the fruit firmly; if it gives slightly, it's ready to eat. Sniffing the fruit where the stem is (or was) for a fragrant fruity smell is another way to tell if the fruit is ready.

Step 6 - Baking Mango Bread

Using spray oil, butter or Crisco shortening, grease and flour the sides and bottoms of baking pans. Pour batter into pans until they are 3/4 full. Place on middle rack in the 350 degree oven.

Baking time depends on the number and size of baking pans:

Bake 35-40 minutes for four small baking pans.

Bake 50-60 minutes if using two standard size baking pans.

Check if mango bread is ready by inserting a bamboo skewer or toothpick into center of each loaf. Remove bread when skewer is dry and outside of bread is nice and brown.

Oven baking times vary. Watch loaves carefully when baking for the first time.

Fresh banana mashed can be substituted for mango if desired.

Step 7 - Enjoy Your Freshly Baked Mango Bread

Mango bread in the morning....or anytime!

Remove loaves from oven. Turn pans upside down and catch loaf in other hand. Set on cooling racks.

Slice and serve mango bread for breakfast with more fresh fruit and a cup of coffee. Skip the butter or margarine as it's not needed here. Enjoy!

Mangoes.......How do you like them? - Do you prefer mangoes fresh off the tree or baked in bread? :)

      I've only eaten mangoes plain but don't really care for them. Terrible, huh?! I love your green Depression glass plate and cup!

      I found fresh mangoes like eating perfume, but maybe I would like them better this way.

      I love mangoes and when it is mango season, I can't think of a better way to use up excess mangoes than to bake mango bread! Yum! I also like to add a pinch of allspice to the batter and use walnuts or pecans instead of almonds. Any nuts that are available are excellent, IMHO (in my humble opinion). Well done and angel blessed.

      I've had mangoes fresh off the tree in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Doesn't get any better than that.
