wp-1464171216745.jpeg

Come Summer and the royal land of Nizams, Hyderabad appears golden yellow.Hyderabad fondly known as the ‘Pearl City’ is an enchanting land of heritage monuments,forts,palaces, lakes, museums, gardens, software parks and more importantly a delectable cuisine fit for the kings. And when it is summer, especially in the month of May, the entire city is dotted with the king of fruits-mangoes,beautiful luscious mangoes,aromatic,sweet and full of flavor.You can see them everywhere,on every street,in every nook and corner. On pushcarts,in kiosks,in fruitstalls,in stores,in juice corners,in homes..just everywhere. Mango is the most loved fruit across the world and India alone produces half of the world’s mangoes.

Mango lovers can’t have enough of mangoes. And to their delight this year the food safety department of hyderabad has ensured that the vendors or producers keep the mangoes chemical free,i.e free of artificial ripeners like Calcium Carbide.

I really look forward to summers and fresh ripe mangoes to bake this time tested  easy mango bread recipe. The aromas and flavors of this bread are truly amazing. Moreover, this recipe is light and does not use butter or too many eggs. You can add raisins and walnuts in this bread for extra flavor and a crunch. The color of the loaf is beautiful. You can enjoy it warm on it’s own or with a scoop of mango ice cream….mmm…I can still remember the taste and smell the aroma wafting around….long after the bread was devoured.

Line a loaf tin with butter paper and pour the batter in it. Cover the tin lightly with aluminium foil so that the top does not brown fast. You can remove the foil after half an hour. Complete baking until a toothpick comes out clean. It should take about 1 hour.

Let it cool before you unmould it and slice it. Enjoy just like that or with a scoop of icecream.

    That looks absolutely delicious. I have a nut allergy so I assume I cam just take the walnuts out and maybe put in a few raisins or sultanas? I must try this 😋

      Thank you so much ☺ You really don’t need to add the nuts. The original recipe doesn’t have them. I added them only because I like walnuts. The bread will taste just as delicious without nuts.

    When I lived in Florida, mangoes were a surfeit and everyone tried to get rid of their excess. Here in the desert of Arizona, we have them, but they were picked from trees long before it was time, thus they have no flavor at all. I can remember the juice running down my arms when eating them as a kid, but now they are dry and useless. A pity! 😦 Yours look ever so much more appealing.

      Oh!! That’s really sad. But do you get imported mangoes there. My brother in law lived in Arizona until recently. He is a paediatrician and he would tell us how he would have to drive miles to get to any place. I wanted to visit the place till his family lived there, to see the rustic charm but couldn’t make it.

    Oh gosh, what’s better than mango bread at this time of year, or anytime for that matter. Yours looks so moist and flavorful Ana. I didn’t realize that India alone produced so many mangoes. Whenever we’d visit Goa, I would gorge on mangoes all day long :). The Alphonso variety were my favorite 🙂

      Thank you so much Sandhya. I am sure you get Alphonso mangoes near your place. I have fallen in love with clicking pics in natural light. It is unbeatable. But when I make dishes in the evening or night I feel so helpless that I have to make do with artificial lighting. Have a tough time avoiding reflections. I think i need to take some lessons in photography with all modes of lighting.
      Have a wonderful week ahead ☺ 👍
