Mango Cupcakes

Mango Cupcakes

  As monsoon has arrived, and  everyone is welcoming it with open arms including me, I am getting a bit disheartened with the disappearing act of mangoes from the market. Though  mangoes are still available in the market, rarely good quality mangoes are seen.  I got lucky this weekend and got hold of some good quality mangoes. Going to use it to the fullest and savour each bite of it.
    Today I am sharing a mango cupcake recipe which is foolproof and definitely a keeper.   Tried different mango cupcake recipes out there available on internet but they were not that fruity flavor and then I tried  this recipe and it was a hit, just the right texture, soft ,spongy and fruity.
