Mango Muffins

I saw this recipe on Raaga's blog for Mango Muffins and the moment I skimmed through the ingredients list I thought to myself, "I can make this easily today!".

And yes, they were pretty easy to make. And they came out quite nice too!

The recipe:
3/4 cup Coconut Milk (I used regular milk)
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1 cup Mango, chopped into fine pieces
1 cup Flour
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
½ to ¾ cup Jaggery
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cardamom Powder or Essence
1 Egg
1/4 tsp Salt

  1. Grease 12-muffin pan or line with paper cases. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Place all the ingredients except the mango pieces in a food processor jar fitted with the dough blade. Run the food processor for 2 minutes until the ingredients form a batter.
  3. Blend the mango pieces into the batter and pour spoonfuls of the batter into the muffin moulds. Bake for 20 minutes.
I as usual baked them in the microwave but yes, I'm sure they will come out better in oven texture-wise.

But somehow I didn't like the flavour of Mango in the muffins. So next time I will probably put something else as a replacement to mango. Maybe oranges. I was also thinking of putting chunks of fresh pineapple in it as an option.


  1. try fresh chunks of pinapple... i need to get a oven... missing out lot of good recipies like this :(

  2. I think I'll try pineapple muffins. Don't fancy mangoes in cake, come to think of it.

    Hey, do you get blueberries or even blueberry preserve there? Blueberry muffins are just the mother of muffin goodness :D

  3. Suki: I did get the blackberry preserve which I even posted about here. I don't see them here available in their fresh form.
