Mango & White Chocolate Muffins

With my daughter indulging in all the baked goodies mummy rustles up in the kitchen every week, I thought I would try her favourite fruit to zap this up a little and also convince myself, that there is a cheeky one of the 5 day involved!  Mangoes are her favourite and they  worked surprisingly well in this adapted recipe.  Okay, so I dressed them with a little white chocolate but this gave the muffins a lovely surprising texture in each mouthful :-)  They also freeze quite well once baked, so, in the event of any to spare, they can be saved for later. :-)


  • 110g butter
  • 250g plain flour (plus 1 tablespoon flour)
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 125ml milk
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • Flesh of 1 mango chopped into small chunks
  • 50g chopped white chocolate


1) Preheat oven to 180C.  Line a muffin tin with 12 muffins cases/liners
2) Add flour, baking powder and salt and set aside
3) Cream the butter and sugar until light and creamy.  
4) Add the vanilla essence and eggs and beat well.
5) Alternately add and mix half of the milk and flour mixture, ensuring it is incorporated well. Repeat.  
6) Gently coat the mango and chocolate with the remaining flour and stir through into the mixture.
7) Fill the muffin cases two thirds full as they do rise very well.  Bake for 25-28 minutes until brown.  Insert a skewer to ensure they are cooked through.
