A moist cake with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla in it combined with a sugar crust on the outside. ;)
This is a tasty cake recipe, which reminds me a little bit of christmas because of the nuts, the dried fruit and the hint of cinnamon in it.
I hope you'll enjoy it! ^^

  • Step 1

    Grease your cake pan with some butter.

    (I used a German “Kastenform” with the measures 25x13.5x6.5 cm;
    the American equivalent might be a loaf pan of about 9.84”x5.31”x2.56”, I think.)

  • Step 2

    Then take some brown sugar and cover the greased inside of the pan with it.
    (That will become a sugar crust on your cake after baking.)

  • Step 3

    After that, take a bowl and mix 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 3 eggs, 3/4 cups sunflower oil and 1 tsp vanilla extract in it until creamy.

    Then add 2 cups chopped mango and stir a little.

  • Step 4

    Take a second bowl and mix 2 cups wheat flour, 2 tsp baking soda, 1-2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp salt in it.

  • Step 5

    Then add the wheat-mix to the egg-sugar-mix in the first bowl and stir it well.

  • Step 6

    Now, add 3/4 cup raisins (alternatively dried cranberries or cherries) and 3/4 cup nuts. Mix it well.

  • Step 7

    While filling the dough into your pan, preheat the oven to 356°F (180°C).

    Bake the Mango Bread about 45-55 minutes.
    (How long exactly, depends on your oven! I used a European standard oven with “Ober-/Unterhitze” (= upper and lower heat) and it took about 50-55 minutes.)

  • Step 8

    The “Knitting-Needle-Test”:

    Test the cake from time to time with a clean metal knitting needle.
    Stick it into the cake.
    When there’s no dough remaining on the needle - when you pull it out again - the cake’s ready.

  • Step 9

    And then - with the famous words, that the notorious French Queen Marie Antoinette is supposed to have said -
    "Let them eat cake!" LOL ;P

P.S. less mangoes would also be ok. a friend of mine tested it with 300-350g, for example. ;)

thanks for your interest in my project! ;)
umm.. I used two small cans of mangoes. That were about 500g. But if you use fresh mangoes.. I suppose two or three big ones? Maybe four? I'm sorry, but I made the cake only with canned mangoes so far. (Were too lazy to cut and stuff..) I think, you just have to try.
But better buy more; the rests could become a tasty smoothie or something. ;)

Looks really good! Nest time I get mangoes, I'll have to try this!

About how many mangoes does it take to get 2 cups?
