Gingerbread in June? You betcha. This isn’t a holiday sort of cake in any sense. When I spotted this recipe in an old Bon Appetit, I tucked it away into my ‘must make soon’ file. Anything that sounds just a little strange-but-wonderful gets tucked into that file. Fresh pureed mango is incorporated into a gingery flavored sweet bread that is scattered throughout with roasted macadamia nuts: Mango Gingerbread with Macadamia Streusel.
This bite gives you a sneak peak of how moist the bread is. Heavy on the ginger flavor, this cake-like bread is topped with a mixture of macadamias, sugar and crystallized ginger. If you don’t care much for a heavy ginger flavor, I would suggest nixing the crystallized ginger on top.
We liked it best with a smidgen of sweetened whipped cream. Next time I might even add two smidgens.
The next strange-but-wonderful recipe sitting in my ‘must try soon’ file involves salmon, peanut butter, and grape jelly. No kidding. Because you never know…it might just be the next best thing!
