Mango Yogurt Bread

A sweet and a little tangy mango yogurt bread characterised by its soft texture of a yogurt bread. Although it was termed a mango bread, the quantity of fresh mango was minute - you could be considered lucky to spot one small bit of mango fruit within the soft crumb 😆 I loved to eat it with butter and strawberry jam😋

Yield: one loaf of bread
Pan size: 21x13x10 cm (Jamie Oliver 1.5 L bread pan)
Baking temperature: Preheat oven to 190℃, bake at 180℃ for 15 minutes, 170℃ for 15~20 minutes.

10g bread flour
2g instant dry yeast
10g water
30g natural yeast *

* natural yeast can be replaced by 15g each of bread flour and water.

Mix all the ingredients and let it stands for about 180 minutes.

Mango Bread Dough

250g bread flour
30g Prima plain flour plus/plain flour
30g raw cane sugar
3g low-sodium fine salt
1g pumpkin powder, for colour purpose

52g sponge from above
20g beaten egg
10g condensed milk
100g mango yogurt, cold
50g fresh milk, cold

20+10g cold water, added depending on dough condition

30g unsalted butter, added after gluten formed

Some egg wash


1. Mix all the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer.

2.  Add all the wet ingredients, except the 20+10g of water and unsalted butter, into the mixing bowl. Add the 20+10g of water slowly to adjust the dough moisture.
When all the ingredients come together into a lump, cover with a lid and keep in the vegetable compartment of a fridge for 20 minutes. This allows autolysis to take place.

3. Knead the dough at low speed till it form into a smoother dough. Add the softened butter and continue to knead till reaching window pane stage.

4. Transfer the kneaded dough to a mixing bowl coated with a thin layer of oil. Spray some water over, cover and let the dough proof for about 1 hour, or till double in size.

End of 1-hour proofing

5. Invert the dough onto a floured worktop. Deflate and fold in the 4 sides, cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.

6. Roll out the dough into a long dough of about 1cm thick again. Roll up like a swissroll and seal at the end.

Lower the dough into the bread pan coated with a thin layer of butter. Spray some water, cover with a tea cloth, and let it proof for about 65 minutes, or till reaching the rim of the pan.

End of second proofing

7. Preheat the oven to 190℃. While waiting, apply a coat of egg wash over.

Bake at low rack of an oven preheated to 190℃, lower temperature to 180℃ and bake for 15 minutes, further lower to 170℃ for 15~20 minutes, or till the top has become golden.

7. Transfer the bread out of oven, and remove from pan immediately.

Let the bread cool down over a wire rack. Cut the bread after it has completely cooled down 😍

Can you spot the tiny mango flesh 🥭?
