This sweet bread is so delicious! Banana is actually more the dominant flavor until you get a bit of mango. My mango was on the smaller side. Luckily, they are in season now (okay, well not locally) and it was a nice and juicy one. The sweetness is heightened by the addition of dates, which give additional bursts of moist chewiness.
I made a few substitutions, most importantly subbing raw cashews for macadamia nuts. Macadamias are incredibly expensive and I couldn't find them in bulk. It's an interesting sub, though, because cashews are actually in the same family as mango (Anacardiaceae)!
I also used coconut oil instead of olive oil to up the tropical theme and lend a slight flavor. I added ginger instead of cinnamon for the same reason. This came together quickly and smelled awesome while baking. Next time, I will make it a little less sweet because I want to eat this bread all the time but I can't justify it for breakfast. Yet.
Do you like sweetbreads? Do you have a favorite? I also love pumpkin bread and gingerbread but there are a lot of different kinds out there.
