These sweet, cake-like muffins combine butter, sugar and eggs with pureed mango, nectar, cinnamon and citrus peels, and sprinkle macadamia nuts on top.

  • Servings: 18

Ingredients:

4 cups Flour
3 tsp Cinnamon
4 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Salt
1 cup Butter
2 cup Sugar
4 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Orange Rind
1 tsp Lemon Rind
2 cup Mango Puree
4 Tbsp (or 1/4 Cup) Mango Juice or Nectar
½ cup Chopped Macadamia Nuts

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Then beat eggs and vanilla into creamed mixture; mix orange rind, lemon rind, mango puree and mango juice into the wet mixture. Stir dry ingredients into the wet mixture just until moistened. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle nuts on top of batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Helpful Tips:

Use a food processor or smoothie mixer to make the mango into a puree. The flavor is enhanced as the mango is in a puree form rather than using diced mango chunks in the muffins.
