Mango Almond Cakes

I love mango pulp; it’s available from the internet, Indian specialty stores, and even in Whole Foods. In the summer I blend it with yogurt and ice to make mango lassi. The mango pulp gives these cupcakes a pretty color and great mango flavor. 

Mango Almond Cakes

  • 3/4 cup organic shortening or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mango pulp
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour/meal
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • pinch of salt
  • sliced almonds to top (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together sugar and shortening till smoothed. Then incorporate eggs one at a time, then almond flour, almond extract and then the mango pulp, mix well. Add flour, baking powder and pinch of salt, and quickly mix till incorporated. Line or grease muffin tin, fill equally and top with a few almond pieces. Bake for about 25min, it should just start browning.

    Mango and almond sound like a great combination. I’ve never had mango muffins before either!
