Mango Muffins - #MuffinMonday

Last month I mentioned that I tried to make mango muffins but they were horrible. Mango season only lasts so long so I thought I'd try again this month before all the mangoes were gone. And this time it worked perfectly! No more dense muffins. I started with the recipe that I used for plantain muffins and that is actually modified from Alton Brown's banana bread. Can't go wrong with Alton Brown. Once again I used Julie mangoes. Julie mangoes are a beautiful bright orange and are less fibrous than other varieties. Hayden or Bombay would have been great too.

Mango Muffins 
Yield: 12 muffins 

4 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons butter
360 grams mango pulp
200 grams brown sugar
120 millilitres oil
2 eggs
250 grams flour
1 tablespoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt


Grease or line a cupcake pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.

Topping: In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, and ginger. Cut in the butter and set aside.

Muffins: Blend together the mango and sugar until the mango is pureed. In a separate container, whisk the oil and eggs together and then add to the mango mixture. Whisk together.

Whisk the flour, ginger, baking soda, and salt.

Slowly combine the flour mixture and the mango mixture. Stir only until just combined being careful not to overmix.

Divide the batter among the cups and sprinkle each with scant two teaspoons of the topping mixture.

Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
