Equipment: Two 8-1/2
x 2-1/2 x 4 inch loaf pans.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Peel and chop mangoes.
Chill in refrigerator for twenty minutes.
Using a whisk, mix together
flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix
together sugar, butter, oil, vanilla and eggs. Add to dry mixture, stirring
to mix. When well blended, fold in pistachios, currants, and mangoes.
Fold gently to not smash mangoes.
Pour into buttered, floured
loaf pans. Let rest for ten minutes before baking.
Cook in 350° F oven
for 50 - 60 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Let cool in pans for

with fresh mango slices on the side.
Yield: Two large loaves.
