Mango Muffins

IMG-20170524-WA0028The season of mangoes coming to an end and I hadn’t baked anything using them. Also I had got some new silicon muffin cups and was raring to use them. What better way I thought than making mango muffins. Since kiddo loves tuti fruity I topped it up with them. Also you can add pieces of chocolate inside the muffin, would be fun to have a Choco blast in between the mango flavor.

I had done that in a couple of them. It was a sweet surprise.

Makes 14-15 Muffins

Ingredients:

All-purpose flour: 2 1/2 cup

Mango pulp: 1 cup

Condensed Milk: 1/2 cup

Baking powder: 1/2 tsp

Baking soda: 1/2 tsp

Butter/ Ghee: 1/2 cup (melted)

Milk: as needed

To Garnish:

Tuti Fruity as needed

 

Method:

 1.Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.

 2. Make pulp of 1 large or 2 medium sized mangoes (Alphonso, Badami, Kesar)                 should work best.

3.Sieve the flour, baking powder, soda and keep aside.

4. Blend the melted butter and condensed milk till well incorporated.

5.Add in the mango pulp and mix well.

6.Add the flour and fold it well. It would be a thick batter. Add little milk if too thick

7.Grease the muffin pan and pour a scoop in each. Top it with tuti fruity.

Mango Milk Shake

Come summers  ,vacations starts and we all look for coolers. Eating lunch/ dinner becomes more difficult thanks to heat and thirst. I love to make milkshakes in summers as they keep us filled for longer hours. When the king of fruits have come, its natural that we all enjoy them for summers.

Here goes the simple mango milkshake that tastes yum, and liked by elders and younger ones alike.

Mango cake

The season of the king of fruits is soon coming to an end. And i wanted to try baking  a cake with mangoes. The cake turned out to be the best I have baked so far. Moist, spongy, the taste just perfect with the flavors of mangoes, perfect sweet and loved by all at home.

The addition of tutti fruity made it nutty, but you can skip it and go ahead with this recipe.

Do try this cake and enjoy.

Notes:

If the top is nicely browned and the inside need more baking, just cover with a butter paper and continue, this way the top won’t get over baked and the cake would still get baked.

Keep an eye after 30 minutes. Allow the cake to cool before slicing to get nice firm slices.

This cake stays good for a couple of days, maybe a little more if refrigerated.

Amarkhand

Summers hold very special memories for all of us. That time of the year, when making pickles, papads  and of course mangoes. Summer with cousins, extended family and mangoes are a yummy combination. Come mangoes, i like to try incorporating in many yummy foods. Other than eating it all by itself. Today, I am sharing recipe of Amarkhand.

Almost all marriages/ festivals this season is not completed without Aamras or Amarkhand, thanks to the king of fruits season. This is also a version of Frozen Yogurt, but with the goodness of mango pulp. The tanginess of the hung curd when blended with the sweetness of mangoes. 😛
