Meeta's Ginger Mango Bread

I was look for something sweet to try from Meeta's blog before the T&T "What for lunch honey"? event ends tonight.With mangoes fresh in season at this time of the year , i found the Mango Ginger Bread very tempting to try and taste.I never used ginger before in my breads ,it was exciting to try this healthy ingredients in a bread recipe. I added few of my other favorites like Almonds,Olive oil and plump dried cherries.
Dry Ingredients needed
11/4 all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup firm packed brown sugar
2 Organic eggs
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1 large ripe mango, cubed

1/2 cup Plump dried cherries
1/4 cup chopped roasted almonds

To make the bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place rack in center of oven. Grease with cooking spray a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl sift the dry ingredients and mix well.set aside.In another bowl ,beat eggs ,oil and Sugar. Stir in the cubed Mangoes grated ginger ,nuts ,cherries and transfer mixture into the greased loaf pan.Bake in the middle rack until the crush is lightly brown about 70-75 minutes.Cool and before flipping the pan to get the bread out ,loosen the sides using a table knife. Slice and serve.

The cake tasted just delicious with chunks of mango and hint of ginger in every bite.
