This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays pick, Sweet Potato Bread with Cinnamon-Rum-Orange Glaze, was chosen by Lorelei of Mermaid Sweets. I instead made it with Mangoes and Strawberry.
I ended up using canned mangoes found in the grocery store. At first, I thought they tasted a bit weird out of the can, but it tasted fine when it came out of the oven.
I first pureed one can of mangoes and the other can, I chopped up and put it into the batter itself. It gave it two different ways of getting mango.
As for the glaze on top, I made it with strawberry juice and Puerto Rican rum. It was pretty good except for the fact the glaze was kind of too sticky or something. It was great regardless.
I had made this and Thin Mint cupcakes for the Bake sale. The next couple [or a lot] of pictures are from the Bake Sale on Saturday! Enjoy. [we made $1650 for charity!]
