Today, I want to share this exciting new recipe for Mango Bread! It is a tribute to sliced bread in a way that redefines bread as a genuine pair with coffee with the sweet notes from dates and mango.
I like to cook and bake mango recipes during its peak season and we are fast approaching the peak in the next few weeks. Mango is not a rare ingredient in Simple Sumptuous Cooking. I have posted several recipes with mango in the past and you can check them out here. Mango Rice pudding, and Mango rice.
Today's recipe is a modified version of a mango bread recipe that I shared exactly a year ago. I am replacing the organic sugar with dates and all-purpose flour with wheat flour.
There is no compromise in the luscious moist flavor or the aroma of mangoes. It has a perfect balance of fluffiness and density, with a golden hue that brightens up dining tables!
Once you gather up the ingredients, the procedure is as simple as whisking and baking. As always, I have not used any eggs for this recipe.
All the fluffiness comes from the wonderful flaxseed mixture. You don't need a reason to enjoy this, but you do need to get it while the mangoes are at their sweetest peak.
If you end up with sour ones, you may have to add a little sugar to the mix. Try it today and let me know what your experiences are...
