Easy Mango Bread Recipe is a Taste of Summer

Even though they don’t grow here in Canada, nothing says summer to me like mangos.

I find they’re at their best when bought in the early summer, and having a piece of perfectly ripe mango always makes me feel like I’m on a tropical beach.

I was in my late teens when I first fell in love with mango, and I got my whole family involved with my new favourite food. We tried mango in everything from ice cream to salsa. And one of our very favourite mango recipes was Mango Bread.

My sister was the one that first discovered and tested the recipe. She tweaked the original recipe that she’d found online, and I tweaked it a little more.

In the end, we created a Mango Bread recipe that was packed with tropical flavour and a hit with the whole family.

Recently, when I was browsing through my folder of printed and handwritten recipes collected over the years, I found my recipe for Mango Bread. I knew I had to see if it was as good as I remembered.

And it did not disappoint! My husband and three kids both devoured slices of the bread as soon as it was cool and within a day, the entire loaf was gone. Banana bread has always been this family’s favourite, but I think that might have changed now!

  1. I didn’t see where you incorporated the vinegar in the method?..is the vinegar in or not?..is that really half of a cup?

  2. Gave this a try today since I had ripe mangoes I wanted to use, and honestly, I’m totally underwhelmed. Turned out moist enough, but the bread has next to no flavor, despite the very flavorful mango. I won’t make this one again.

  3. My kids love mango! I have never considered it as an add in for bread, what an interesting idea. Tbey are already on board on making this next time we get mangoes.

  4. I am on number 4 of this mango bread. I did leave the coconut out, it was delicious without it. I have got a lot of compliments.

    1. Hi Teresa! I’d say so, but I would make sure to drain them well and maybe even cut down on the amount of mango a bit since they will probably have more moisture than fresh mango. Let me know how it works if you give it a try!

    1. I think it would still be delicious! The nuts and coconut are very much just for added crunch and tropical flavour, so you should be able to take them out without changing anything else and still get great results. :)

  5. I love that you can freeze this because I sometimes want a bread but don’t have the time to make it. My in laws visit monthly so this would be perfect because my mil and two sils love mango so this would be a good one to try out. Never heard of mango in a bread but sounds good to try, thanks.
