Mango-Walnut Muffin

I think, the best part of baking is the yummilicious smell that makes you waiting eagerly for the oven-alarm..:p
Like many other things, I am just like my father when it is "Mango" (specially "Himsagar aam"). We both are mad about mango. Now I don't get "Himsagar" mango here...but I get varieties of Thai mangoes ...these are not bad also..but surely no match with "Himsagar".

This time I got few "Himsagar" mango...from India...Thanks to that friend who kindly brought it for us. It is just heavenly...:)) Though normally I just cut it and have without doing anything. But could not resist myself doing this bit of experiment. 

  • 1 and 1/4 cups (190 gm) Chopped fresh ripe sweet mango
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) Plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Mango juice
  • 1/2 cup Chopped walnut
  • 1 Large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Canola or corn oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (240 gm) All-purpose flour

  6. Take a rubber spatula fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined.
  7. Do not over mix the batter or tough muffins will result.
  8. Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter.
  9. Top each cup with chopped walnut and bit brown sugar.
