Cheeky Streaky Mango Muffin with Orange Zest










I am not sure where this recipe came from. I’ve had this basic muffin recipe for years. In fact this was the recipe I used to bake my 1st muffin ever. It so simple and easy and just one of those never fail recipes that I love.
I love mangoes. There is nothing like a good mango; sweet, ‘stick to my fingers and face’ juicy, taunt and fragrant. Most people favourite mango is the Alphonsos but my brother Varun and I love the Banganpalli. I like my mangoes best just as fresh fruit but since I can’t get my hands on fresh mangos through the year I compensate with mango milk shakes and mango pie’s, mango chutneys and now mango muffins.
I have had some mango puree sitting in my freezer just waiting to be used. This morning I woke up with the need to make muffins. Mango Muffins!!! How perfect! My need to bake, my need to use the mango puree and my need for something sweet all coming together in one beautiful amalgamation.
