Mango Chocolate Bread - A baking experiment

Pin It Now!
Now this was just a baking experiment. I had this gorgeous mango from the grocery store. I peeled and cut the fruit to find it so nice and sweet. Yes, its still winter i mean not really summer to have really sweet mangoes. Guess i was just lucky !.
Ok, anyways I was in a mood to have some fruity bread. I modified a recipe i used earlier to use mango and chocolate. The bread was moist and tasted good. But I could have used more of the mango.
Mango Chocolate Bread
1. Preheat over to 350deg F
2. Spray a loaf pan
3.  In a mixing bowl add the following ingredients
1C All purpose flour (Add 2 tbsp cornflower and fill rest of the cup with all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4C Chopped Mango
a handful of chopped dark chocolate chips
1tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1tsp. baking soda

1tsp baking powder
¼ tsp. salt

Rub the ingredients into the flour.
4. In another bowl prepare the wet ingredients :
1/4C oil
1/4C yogurt
1/4C milk or a little more if required.
Stir above ingredients to mix well.
5. Fold the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients till ingredients are just moistened.
6. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
7. Bake for 45 min until a tester comes out clean.
This cake has a very nice crumb. Its moist and just sweet enough. The chocolate mixes very well with the mango. The cake tastes better the next day. But like I said earlier it could use some more of the fruit.
See you in a bit !
