Mango and Lime Muffins

Mango and lime Muffins

I happened to have some mango pulp leftover from when I was having a go at replicating Nandos Mango and lime chicken from scratch. I love mango cake but have actually never had mango muffins. (I am a big fan of muffins, they make me feel like I’m being good too, though I get carried away and eat too much at times which defeats the whole purpose!)

I decided to throw bits together hoping it would work and it did! They came out really well, moist and fluffy.

I used:

  • 100ml oil
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • grated zest of 1 lime
  • 250g self raising flour, sifted
  • 240ml mango pulp (available in foods of the world isles in supermarkets)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Method:

  1. Prepare your muffin tin with liners if using and preheat oven to 170ºC fan/ 190ºC Conventional
  2. Beat together oil,egg, lime zest  and caster sugar until well mixed
  3. Stir in flour alternating with the mango juice (I mixed the lime juice with mango pulp beforehand), beginning and ending with the flour. I use a metal spoon for this to avoid overmixing
  4. Spoon into prepared tins,I use an ice cream scoop so my muffins are the same size
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes (Tops should be golden and if skewer is inserted in the centre it should come out clean)
