For the Mango Cupcakes:

For the Mango Buttercream Frosting:


Make Mango Cupcakes:

  • 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.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk just until you have a smooth batter. Do not overmix or overbeat.
  • 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 :) )
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven about 27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Make Mango Buttercream Frosting:

  • Cream the butter with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, until fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • Now add the mango puree and vanilla and half the sugar. Beat until mixed, then add the remaining sugar and beat until mixed. This should take no more than 2 minutes altogether.
  • Frost the cupcakes after they’ve cooled completely.
