Mango Bread Pudding

This post will serve as double duty this month.  This is my entry to this months Royal Foodie Joust and also as an entry to Cinco De Mango.

The ingredients for this months Royal Foodie Joust are Mangoes, Cardamon and Brown Sugar. I love Mangoes so i was definitely interested.  I hadnt used cardamon before but had been meaning to try it.  So i googled the three ingredients and the first recipe which came up was a Mango Bread Pudding.   

After searching high and low for caradmon (finally found it at $12 for 1.75 oz!!!!), i made the recipe.  I have never made bread pudding before nor do i recall tasting it before so i wasnt sure what to expect.

The overall flavor was really good but i didn't care for the texture.  It was very mushy.

sounds delicious! thanks for participating in Cinco de Mango.

I know caradmon is expensive, but $12? Holy moly! Where are you located? (It may be that expensive here - I haven't bought it in some time, but that sounds like a lot.)

Oh, I love those flavors! And your cheesecake pops look wonderful! Don't know where you live, but check out Penzeys.com for spices like cardamom.
