You can call me mango maniac. Yes crazy about mango, every time when I visit the store I will grab some mango whether it is a dollar for one or 33 cents for one. I would like to incorporate mango in bakes nowadays, as I have tried most of mango recipes in traditional Indian cuisine. First thought of making Mango cookies in line with jackfruit cookies, then skipped that idea. Decide to try these mango cardamom muffins.
This recipe is inspired from Little Flower Baking: Christine Moore, Staci Valentine, Cecilia Leung . I like it because they are selling these in their bakeries. If they can make a living with it, then it should be delicious. There is famous sweet shop in south India doesn’t even have a name or fancy ads, still people stand in queue for about 2 hours to buy the items. So decide to try this muffin. Actually in the cook book if you are looking for a mango cardamom muffin recipe you won’t find it. But you can find a Peach cardamom muffins, she also mentioned that we can use any stone fruit to make it.
So I settled with mango as my favorite fruit. Again I adjusted little bit, I made only half of the recipe as not sure my kids will like it or not. Also instead 1 ½ eggs I used only 1 egg and skipped the streusel type of crisp topping. Even after my little modifications, muffins turned out are so delicious. You can’t stop eating with one sure you are going next one. It is simple recipe just mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and mix wet ingredients in a kitchen aid bowl. Then add fresh mango pieces and fold in. Then top with some extra mango. You will love it, here comes the recipe.
