Mango Banana Bread
The other day, Mr. K casually asked me how many bananas it takes to make banana bread. I told him three. The next day he presented me with three bananas.
Mr. K’s favorite baked good is probably banana bread. He gets so excited when he sees it at potluck parties. I love banana bread too, though probably not nearly as much as him.
I’ve made banana bread so many times. Sometimes I get bored, so I wanted to make a variation on the classic banana nut bread. I’ve done many variations before: nutella, chocolate, biscoff, blueberry. This time I decided to try adding some mangoes, especially since I had so many fresh mangoes in the house.
I also tried adding some mango puree to the batter, but it actually didn’t really add much mango taste to the bread itself, so next time I’ll just leave that out.
I love using these paper loaf pans, which I got on Amazon*. You can bake the bread directly in them and then gift them. I was a little sloppy with pouring the batter into the loaf pan for this particular batch, but you can definitely pour the batter in cleanly if you are gifting these.
