Pan de Mango

 
 
Each year at this time, our dear friend and vivacious  lady, Louise of Month of Edible Celebrations  brings forth her picnic game.  I look forward to this year after year.  This is my fourth time participating and each year, I meet wonderful people and eat great food, at our picnic.

Each person participating, selects a letter and makes a food to bring to the picnic starting with that letter.  In past years, I have taken some really challenging letters such as Q but since quinoa became such a popular food, it is not such a challenge.  This year, I have chosen O for Oriental Pasta Salad.  Salads are great at a picnic and this one is filling and yummy.


Do you know about My Kitchen My World? Each month, they travel to a new location and we cook dishes from that place. Last month was Argentina and this month is Cuba. The group is open to everyone. If you are interested, go on over and leave a comment. There are no requirements as to how often you have to cook. Simply, join in and have fun.

Ingredients:

2 cups gluten-free flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried cherries, soaked in hot water for 10 min and drained (
I used fresh cherries instead)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 chopped firm-ripe mangoes 

1 tablespoon lime juice

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease two 7x3" loaf pans. 


In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add the cherries and stir until evenly distributed. 

In another bowl, with a whisk or an electric mixer, beat together the sugar, eggs, and oil until fluffy and light colored, about 3 minutes.

Add the vanilla. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and beat just until smooth. Do not overmix.

With a large spatula, fold in the mangoes and lemon juice. Scrape the batter into the prepared pans. 


Bake in the center of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is firm, the loaf pulls away from the sides of the pans, and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove from the pans to a wire rack to cool completely. When cooled, wrap in plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until ready to serve. 


I hope you sit near me so you can taste these at our picnic.
