I am not a good baker! But, I really wanted to try this bread. I am not crazy about artificial sweeteners, and wanted to make it healthier, so I made the following changes:
I used 1 cup all purpose and 1 cup unbleached flour
3 tsp baking soda (after reading other comments)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon because I really want to taste the mango.
5 medium mangos - about 3 1/2 - 4 cups. (1 ½ cups of it I pureed) I did NOT use store bought, I used my mother in law's which have no fiber and taste like candy! Unfortunately I do not know the "type".
butter -a quarter of a cup (1/2 of a stick)
canola oil - a quarter of a cup
¾ cup of organic whole cane sugar, and it was still a little too sweet
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon – (another reader suggested this for rising but I forgot to add it and my bread did not rise)
1/2 cup raisins – I omitted these (again in hopes of increasing the mango flavor)
I used 1 cup walnuts(love walnuts)
¾ cup of desiccated unsweetened coconut
The rest is pretty much the same, except that due to laziness I used my Vitamix to blend the dry ingredients, then separately the wet ingredients, then combined the 2 in a bowl.
I also had to lessen the cooking time to 35 min. Probably because I have a convection oven? Maybe due to the ingredient change?
