See also

As the eyes of the world turn to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and we witness some of the finest athletes in the world compete in their chosen sport, there is no need to be watching on an empty stomach! As the world gathers in Sochi, Russia, we bring the world together in the kitchen and celebrate international diversity with some classic world famous desserts!

The beauty of Jamaica is always found in the native food. The wonders of a Jamaican kitchen are found in this scrumptious bread laden with fresh mango and a texture which must be tasted to be believed.

Luckily here on the mainland, we can get fresh mango almost whenever we want it. When it is not being shipped from Hawaii, it is being shipped from Mexico or South America. Due to this, there really is no reason not to make this island dessert favorite a part of your food festivities.

Ingredients needed to make Jamaican Mango Bread (makes 1 loaf):

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup corn oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups cubed mango

Steps:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Line the bottom of a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the oil and sugar until well combined. Whisk in the eggs until smooth and then the vanilla.
  4. Stir the egg mixture into the flour. Fold the mangos into the batter.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and let rest 10 minutes.
  6. Place in the oven and bake 60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.
