Add liquid to bread and mix well by hand, making sure bread is in small pieces. Add diced mango and fruit cocktail or pears and mix again. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to absorb.
Place mixture in an 8 by 8 square baking pan which has been rubbed with a pat of butter. Place in pre-heated oven for 1 hour.
