We live on the slopes of Haleakala, where carrots, potatoes, cabbage, bananas, litchis and mangoes are grown. This is my favorite recipe using mangoes.

"Just tried this recipe & it turned out very well. It is so rich and moist it's hard to resist. I will definitely make it again."

"I made this today and let me tell you, this is a winner. Wow, is it good. I followed the recipe exactly but only used one 9 1/2 x 5 1/2-inch loaf pan. I had to cook it a little longer (about 10-15 minutes longer) and you need to let it cool at least 15 minutes before removing. I only let it cool 10 minutes and part of it stuck.

It is absolutely delicious. Here is a link to my review with photos:"

"Awesome bread, very moist and flavorful. Since the mango I had was very ripe and sweet, I took off 1/2 cup of the sugar."

"I had some very overripe mangoes that I didn't want to waste, so I flipped through one of my TOH books and found this recipe. I followed it to the "T" and it came out perfect! Very easy to make; very moist and most of all very delicious! NOTE: Don't panic when the batter becomes doughy at the end of step one. Once you add the mangoes into the batter, it moistens up nicely."
