This was one of my contributions to Mother's Day brunch. Everyone loved it!
Mango Banana Bread
vegan, adapted from the sweets life
makes 1 loaf
3 medium or 2 large ripe bananas
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 ripe mango, sliced into chunks
Preheat oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan (or 2 mini pans) and set aside.
Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in sugar, oil, and vanilla extract.
Sift in the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt, mixing just until combined. Fold in mango pieces.
Pour batter into the loaf pan. Sprinkle a little brown sugar on top if you'd like.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing.
I let mine cool for another 30 minutes or so wrapped up in a clean kitchen towel.
