Jackfruit Honey Bread for #BreadBakers

Thank you for sharing!

Last Updated on November 13, 2019 by Chef Mireille

Jackfruit BreadThis month’s #BreadBakers challenge was to use no refined sugar hosted by Mayuri. I decided to use honey. This is a simple tea bread that is perfect with your morning cup of java.

The original intention was to use banana, but then a late night mishap had me searching the house for what other fruit I could use instead. I had a container of jackfruit I had purchased in Chinatown…perfect! Cleaning jackfruit is a laborious task, but if you live near a Chinatown you can usually purchase containers already cleaned and sometimes deseeded for you. Ah…convenience. If you’ve never tasted jackfruit before, it has a taste similar to mango.

    Hello Mereille, What a genius idea to have used Jackfruit in your bread. I love jackfruit and must try it out. I absolutely agree that ripe jackfruit tastes like mango. Your bread looks so moist and flavourful. Thanks for sharing!

    I saw a jackfruit at a roadside stand the last time I was in Hawaii and wondered what it was like inside. Next time I’ll have to try it out.

    I see the recipe calls for bananas in the beginning. Is this still required if we are using jackfruit? If so, how much bananas? Thank you!
