I used to have a strong aversion to mango. Given as I love to travel to tropical countries, this fruit is frequently available to me and yet, I generally choose to pass them up. That is until last year, in Nicaragua, when all that changed. While studying Spanish in San Juan del Sur, the family I stayed with served them to me frequently. It seems that mangos were in season while the other fruit I normally ate were not. If I wanted to meet the 5-10 servings of fruit and veg I needed to eat them up. So after a few mangos I got over my aversion and even started to like them. Lucky for me because this week Kelly of Baking with the Boys picked Fresh Mango Bread.
I made this loaf for my turn at Snack Friday, which is coming up this week. I am pretty excited about it tasting it, it looks like it is a great loaf. Head on over to Tuesdays with Dorie to check out some other great blogs. I greatly appreciated the help I got chopping the mangos in the preparation stages of baking. As well, I’d like to give a shout out to Claire, who hooked me up with my brand new microplane zester and is literally in the middle of writing her licensing exams this week. Study hard Claire so you can get back to baking!
