Mango Muffin – moist, fast and fluffy, get excited about this tropical bread.
Once considered exotic and aphrodisiac, the consumption of mango has increased and is somewhat consumed just like any other fruit, not so exotic anymore. You will find them available in most supermarkets and street corners, especially during mango season. And for mango lovers like me, we are always on the look out for new ways to use up this tropical fruit.
This is one of those SUPER DUPER mango muffins or breads that you can easily whip up with leftover bananas and mango. The first time I tested this recipe was with my “fancy mixer “ and it came out okay – the texture was gummy the flavor was delicious
On the second try, I ditched the mixer (Not that I think the mixer was the culprit here) just wanted to see how it would work out for those times when you are too lazy to pull out a mixer. Surprising enough it turned out just the way I dreamed it would be – Moist, tasty and fluffy.
Say hello to my new favorite banana bread – Mango Banana Muffin Bread and it only took 15 minutes to make- had to pick up my son from summer camp so was in a hurry, had to be out of the oven before I left.
Hey! I see you. Staring at my drizzle with admiration, wishing you could do it just like me. So wanted to give credit to my sous chef (son) but he was nowhere near this muffin, the cat would have been an obvious choice, but sorry to say no cat in my house. So I’m going to own this! It is all MOI. Every single aspect of this icing. We have to give credit where credit is due – hehe…
