Mango Cupcakes

It was raining the whole day Sunday but the temperature was not so cold. Rain was a welcome break after the cold days (Yeah, winter is still here). Sundays were mostly stay-at-home-take-rest days and the afternoons are meant for a movie/tv. I was craving for something fresh and hot and was in a mood to have freshly baked goodies from oven. I had a can of mango puree which had brought from Indian stores before a couple of weeks. I made this mango cupcakes after some googling. 
I made few tweaks to the original recipe which called for cardamom powder and ground almond but I replaced it with MTR Badam Feast (Almond mix with saffron). I also dropped the butter since I was using oil and fruit puree. I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup instead of 3/4 cup since my mango puree was sweetened. I got a super-soft fruity muffin with a almond touch.


Ingredients:
Source: Journey Kitchen
All-purpose flour/Maida - 1 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp (Make this 2 tsp if going eggless)
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Badam mix - 1 tbsp  
Mango puree - 1 1/2 cups (360 ml)
Canola oil - 1/3 cup (80 ml) - Any vegetable oil would be fine
Sugar - 2/3 cup (Make it 3/4 cup if mangoes are not so sweet)
Vanilla - 1 tsp
Eggs - 2 (room temperature)
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the oven rack in the middle and line the muffin tray with liners. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, badam mix in a whisk/Sieve together three times. Cream the oil and sugar with a hand mixer in a low speed for a minute. Add the eggs and mix for 2 mins. Now mix in the vanilla and the mango puree and beat until well mixed. Now pour the wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix until combined. Do not over-mix. The batter would be of cake batter consistency. Pour to the liners and bake for 25-30 mins until a tooth-pick inserted comes out clean. Serve warm.

  52. I just came across your blatant copy of my mango cupcakes recipe. While anyone is welcome to cook the recipes on my blog, I absolutely do not tolerate bloggers who "tweak" ingredients and then repost them without giving credit. Either credit my blog immediately for the recipe, or take it down.
