For a long time now, I have been looking for a delicious recipe using mango pulp and flax seed in making cup cakes. My search ended when I saw this recipe. The results were amazing..The kids loved it and we did too. I stuck to the original recipe for the most part except some minor tweaks to suit our taste. Instead of a quick bread I baked them as cupcakes. 

All this started when my 3 yr old started hounding me to bake cup cakes for her. So I then remembered that I had bookmarked this recipe earlier and so started the process. Believe me, she was following me up every 5 min until I served her the cup cakes! Thanks to my 3 year old, we enjoyed this delicious cupcakes. The dried fruit bits mingled with mango and banana flavors added to the taste.

Ingredients - 

Dry Ingred:

All Purpose Flour/Maida 1 cup 
Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup 
Baking Soda 1 tsp 
Baking Powder 1 tsp 
Flax Seed Powder 3 Tbsp

Wet Ingred:

Mango Pulp (Sweetened) 1 cup 
Banana 3/4 cup 
Sugar 1/2 cup 
Water 1/2 cup
Oil 3-4 Tbsp

Dried Fruit bits 1/2 cup 

Method Of Preparation - 

In a mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients so that there are no lumps.

Make a mixture of banana puree , mango pulp, sugar, oil and water.

Mix in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and add the dried fruit bits. (I added papaya and pineapple bits).

Gently mix so that the dry and wet ingredients are blended in well.

Preheat the oven to 350F. 

Prepare the muffin plate by placing the wax paper cups. Pour the batter into the cups and bake for about 20-25 min. (I pulled out mine in exactly 20 min).

Cool them on a wire rack and enjoy after 5-10 min!
