That sounds like the ULTIMATE flavor explosion! I love all of the subs you made!! And you had a mango tree in your backyard in Hawaii!? I’d never leave!!!

I didn’t put raisins in mine, but cinnamon chips instead.

My mangos were a bit…sour?

YUM! Your changes sound delicious. So does that passionfruit buttercream.

I love every single one of those ideas for additions that you made. Those flavors all together must be so wonderful…and the cystalized ginger would send it over the top. Gorgous photo inside and out. Need to try your variation soon, very soon! Best thing each week is seeing how everyone adjusts the recipes…I am so uncreative that I never do as I am sure it won’t turn out…so very fun to see all this from you this week!

Wow…sounds like a real winner! All of your changes sound delicious and your bread looks spectacular!

You lived in Hawaii and you had a mango tree? Wow, I’m jealous! Your loaf sounds awesome. I definitely want to try this bread with pineapple.

I have true Vietnamese cinnamon as well, and it can be overpowering unless you remember to cut it back.

But really, it doesn’t matter, since I ate all the mangos and didn’t bother making the bread!

I love the changes you made and I love pineapples. I will certainly try this version soon.
Wonderful job!

This sounds amazing! And you definitely would know a good mango from a bad one, having lived in Hawaii. When I was a child living in Papua New Guinea, we had a mango tree outside our front door. Beautiful shade and wonderful, tree-ripened fruit. Nothing like it! I love your passionfruit addition! Sounds heavenly!!

The subs you made were creative! Your bread looks fantastic and I’d love a slice, especially with passionfruit buttercream!! =)

Way to go! I never follow Penzey’s advice, usually using most of what the recipe calls for when I use the Vietnamese Cinnamon (but I *heart* cinnamon). I bet this was amazing with the pineapple!

Necessity seems to be the mother of delicious invention in the case of this beautiful bread! I was wondering how pineapple would do, and it looks fabulous. Great job making this your own (and a bit healthier too!)

Wow! This looks great…what a flavor combination!

I love the addition of the pineapple – it looks devine!

Pretty cool that you added this, subtracted that, and came up with a masterpiece. I hope to be wise enough in the kitchen to do that someday. Have a bite for me!

Caitlin said in May 24th, 2009 at 12:32 pm

I love the changes you made – so wonderful!

Margaret said in May 24th, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Wonderful subs. Next time I will have to try your version. Fantabulous.

The pineapple sounds like an excellent addition to this recipe. Yum.
