Vegan Mango Cupcakes with Mango Buttercream Frosting. Each bite of this cupcake is a smooth tropical kiss with a hint of cardamom. The velvety buttercream is mindblowingly delicious.
Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Mix in the green cardamom powder.
In another bowl, beat together until well-mixed the mango puree, oil, sugar and vanilla extract.
Divide the batter equally among 12 cups of a standard-sized muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. Smooth down the tops with the back of a spoon or spatula or you will have a lumpy top (it’ll still taste delicious, though :) )
Cream the butter with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, until fluffy, about 1 minute.
