Recipe for :

Tropical Fruit Muffins

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill had this to say:

"Greetings from Central Minnesota, where it is still cool enough to bake on a Summer evening. Sometimes it is difficult to convince the young people I work with to show up on a Saturday Morning, so I fell back on the old standby . . . feed them! The sweet smell of slightly over ripe Mangos and Bananas led me to try this one, and they were inhaled within moments, so I thought you might enjoy them too".


2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar (OR) 3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 to 1 1/2 cup(s) Mango Pulp ( 2 very ripe Mangos)


Cut and peel two very ripe (soft to the touch) Mangos and reduce to soft pulp and juice. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. In a seperate bowl combine oil, milk, and egg. Mix liquid ingredients with dry until just moist and stir in the Mango pulp. Fill greased muffin tins, or paper muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400ºF for 15 - 18 minutes.

They are done when they are brown on top and a tooth-pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
