Yesterday I posted a recipe using this wonderful tropical fruit in a delicious pie. Today I will give you the recipe for a Mamey Tea Bread. I love a little something sweet with my coffee or tea in the morning and this is the prefect compliment. Mamey is so sweet that I was able to reduce the sugar in the recipe it came out just right.
Keep watching because I am still eyeballing the pumpkin roll made with Mamey idea I mentioned yesterday. My family and friends just love that roll and so I think I will make it this weekend and pump it up with some pineapple tidbits... Funny story - I brought the pumpkin roll to a potluck once and early on a woman came up to me and asked if she could take whatever was leftover home. Hmmm. Sure I said. Well quite frankly there was not a crumb left! I have a funny feeling if I make it with the Mamey I might have to make 2...or 3!
