Mango Banana Bread

I made this bread this morning because my mangoes and bananas were going overripe.  I am a big fan of any types of fruit bread - banana, blueberry, raspberry, or zucchini.  Now, I have another to add to the list.  

There is something about a warm loaf of breakfast bread right out of the oven with a cup of piping hot coffee to start the morning.  Satisfying and relaxing while there is no activity in the house.  Both the dog and cat were sleeping in the sun and it was peaceful.

Make a loaf of this bread, sit back, have some coffee and relax.  Enjoy your morning!
