3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups chopped mangoes
(I use the Del Monte mangoes in the jar
because they are always so fresh and juicy)
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup golden raisins
(going to be honest here - I use way more! I usually use almost a whole cup)
2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Beat eggs,oil, and sugar. Mix in spices, vanilla, and lemon juice. Alternately add flour, mixing until well blended. (Mixture will be thick - I usually do this by hand.)
Add raisins and well drained mangoes. Pour into loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
For me - this recipe seems to make enough for the one loaf pan and for about 2 muffins which I bake in little pudding cups - (I think this is because I add the extra raisins - oh well!)
I am sure that using fresh mangoes is probably just as good - I am just hooked on the ones in the jar!
Enjoy! Don't blame me when you can't stop eating this bread!
We are just back from our trip to Asheville, Black Mountain, the Biltmore, and lots more! (The rose garden at the Biltmore was stunning!) (My nests look adorable in their new home!) (We found some wonderful new places in Asheville!) (And - we attended the most charming Repertory Theater in Mars Hill!)
We went non stop for 3 days and I have lots of pictures and stories to share with you. Just need a few days to process it all (and I do have a job you know - so have to find time to work also!)
