This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Kelly, of Baking with the Boys. It was a great choice, after a really chocolate-intense month filled with cakes, tarts, puddings, creams, etc. However, as soon as I saw that it was Mango bread, Chris Kattan immediately came to mind. I just loved his character of Mango, the exotic dancer on SNL. Anyways...I digress...
I recently finished up my part-time job, so I found myself with my Monday evenings wide open once again. I missed that me-time and I'm so glad to have it back! In celebration on my first free Monday, I went to the gym, went food shopping, came back and cleaned the kitchen, whipped up a delicious dinner of Tamale Pie and Zero Point Vegetable Soup and then...Mango Bread! I was so proud.
And the bread was so yummy. The batter just kept getting into my mouth. Honestly, I have no idea how that happened. I added in some small pieces of candied ginger for a spicy kick and left out the lime zest. The mango, cinnamon and brown sugar are a great combination and made the house smell amazing.
This recipe was a perfect way to celebrate spring with a fresh and spicy sweet treat! And maybe some cross-dressing exotic dancing. But ya know..whatever you're into.
