Mango Nut Bread

  • 1 to 1¼ cups diced mango (about 1 medium mango)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ cup margarine, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9-by-4-inch loaf pan and set aside. Dice the mango and add lime juice; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar with electric mixer.  Add eggs, beat well.

Combine dry ingredients with a whisk in a small bowl. Add to egg mixture and stir with wooden spoon only until incorporated – do not beat. Add vanilla and stir well. Fold in mango with lime and nuts just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 45 minutes; test with knife inserted in center. When knife comes out clean, bread is done.

Makes 1 loaf.

This bread freezes very well.

Note: Feel free to substitute your favorite nut or leave out entirely.mango

    Our first nearly mature mango fell yesterday. That means it’ll be another three weeks or so before the rest of them start raining down. Looks like we have a good crop. We were worried that it might be a lean year because we had it trimmed back last summer.

    It had been long enough that we were worried that an active hurricane season might drop it on our neighbor’s house.
