TWD- Fresh Mango Bread

This week's TWD recipe, Fresh Mango Bread, was chosen by Kelly who blogs over at Baking with the Boys. You can find the recipe on her blog or check out this post from when I made this about a year ago. Last year when I made it I used Mott's Fruit flavored unsweetened applesauce, the Mango Peach flavor, in place of some of the oil and the results were fabulous.

This time I wanted quicker results, so I made this recipe into muffins. I had nice, large, juicy, ripe mangoes and a happy helper. She was really curious about the pit of the mango and was trying to find it. (She even ate some of the peel! we really didn't waste any of our mangoes!)
I made the full recipe and got 21 muffins. I only baked them for 22 minutes and they were done. Nice and golden brown. I used lemon zest, substituted half of the flour with whole wheat flour, subbed chopped pecans for the raisins, and drizzled half of the muffins with some leftover lime buttercream frosting that I thinned with a little lime juice and milk. (I will be posting the recipe for the cupcakes and lime buttercream later this week).
We all really liked this recipe, that is part of the reason why I made it again.

That's funny: you made the whole recipe and got 21 muffins, I made half and had 24 muffins!! I really loved these, as did the coworkers: the muffins were literally gone in 5 minutes!

Oh I love mango! wow, and never would I have thought to make mango muffins! These look great! And I love how you used leftover icing...yum Mary Ann!

Marie said...

Great idea to make muffins and I love the glaze!

Barbara Bakes said...

Love the drizzle! Such a cute mango eater!

Steph said...

Mangoes are too yummy to be wasted! I love the muffin idea and was going to do that, but I made 1/3rd of the recipe and didn't think I would get too many so I made mini loaves. The glaze looks really good on the muffins!

Clivia said...

Your muffins looks delicious and your helper is adorable!

Peggy said...

Mmmm, I've never had mango bread, but I'm liking the idea of it. Yummy.

Eliana said...

I like your take on this recipe the most of all the others I've seen. Thumbs up.

Anne said...

The muffins look great! I love that you subbed whole wheat flour. As I was mixing the dough and saw the color from all the spices, I thought that would have been perfect (my family never would have known!) Now about next week's recipe and all that butter... any ideas?

Maria said...

I haven't tried this one yet. I really want to. Looks so good!

Karen said...

Ooooh lime buttercream frosting!!! That sounds so good! I LOVED this bread!

Love the pictures of your daughter eating mango. For some reason, I don't think I'm as cute when I do it.

Your muffins look fantastic. I love the lime frosting drizzle.

Fabulous idea to make mango muffins! Think I'd like that better than the bread. Yummy with lime frosting and yummy just fresh with the pit and all, apparently!

Jennifer said...

Mmm.. muffins, that sounds so good.
I really liked this recipe, too, and will have to sub in some whole wheat flour next time.

I gave my daughter the pits too.
