Mango Banana Strawberry Chocolate Chip Bread

It's a mouthful to say, I know.  But when you have a mouthful of this recipe, you'll agree that it's worth it.  I made it a couple of days ago and it is really good.  Don't  believe me?  Try it yourself!  I just added extra fruit to a basic banana bread recipe so this is really easy to make!


1 medium sized mango
Chocolate chips
1/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

1.  Combine and mash the mango, bananas and strawberries.  I did this in my manual food processor.  It cut everything up and mixed it together at the same time.  I used two bananas and about 1/2 of a 2 lb package of strawberries and it came to about 2 1/2 cups of mashed up fruit.

2.  In a bowl, combine the oil, sugar and water.  Mix.  Add the eggs, vanilla and mango/banana/strawberry mixture.  Mix well to combine.

Wet Ingredients
3.  In a different bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and chocolate chips.

Note about the flour:  I used a 1/2 cup to measure out the flour.  Because mango adds extra moisture, I wanted to add more flour to help counteract that.  I used 4 heaping 1/2 cups of flour to get my 2+ cups.

Dry Ingredients
4.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones.  I poured in 1/2 then mixed until they were all wet before I added the rest.

5.  Pour the batter into 2 greased loaf pans.  Bake at 375 for about 35 -45 minutes.  I checked it every 8 minutes or so after 30 minutes to make sure it didn't burn.  Test with cake tester to make sure the inside is done.

6.  Let cool before removing from pan.  Enjoy!

Finished bread.

Slice of heaven.  So good!

  7. sounds exotic and yummy, but I would have to do it without the chocolate chips though...they are just too expensive here.
