Mango-Mango Cupcakes

IMG_1141_resizeAlas, the last weekend of the summer is upon us. Sigh.

In celebration of the Labour Day long weekend, I decided to whip up a batch of summery cupcakes.

Nothing quite says summer to me like the taste of mango. For this recipe, I used mango puree in the batter as well as in the icing. To finish, I garnished them with some shredded coconut. So prepare yourselves, because these cupcakes pack a tropical punch.

However you choose to celebrate this long weekend, I hope you enjoy it!

Wishing you sweet satisfaction,

Anita

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup canola oil

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup mango puree

1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine oil and sugar. Whisk in one egg at a time. Add mango puree and vanilla.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, folding them in using a spatula, until just combined. Careful not to over mix or the cupcakes will turn out dense. (Darn gluten! )

5. Fill cupcake wells 3/4 full and bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Allow to cool completely before icing.
