Eggless Banana Mango Muffins

I am ultra late in posting for this month's Sweet Punch. The recipe chosen for this month was Strawberry Banana Muffins and I was clueless as to what could be used as a substitute to strawberry. Finally I decided to use mangoes as the king of fruits is about to disappear soon only to come back next year... I made these muffins eggless because I made them early morning when I was rustling and hustling in the kitchen to leave for office and I did not have the time to bring eggs to room temperature and luckily I had forgotten butter on the kitchen deck the previous night. What a co-incidence!!! My kitchen was filled with a beautiful aroma when these were getting baked. My kids did not like the muffins much but I loved them not only for the taste but also for the fact that they got done super quick.

Recipe source: Sweet Punch via Joy of Baking

Unsalted butter - 1/4 cup, melted
Eggs – 1 large, lightly beaten (I did not add this)
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
Ripe bananas – 2 large (I used 4 Yelakki variety as they are small) – approx 1 cup
Mango pieces – 1 cup
Maida / AP Flour – 1 1/8 cup
Demerara sugar – 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp
Baking powder – ¾  tsp
Baking soda – ½ tsp
Ground cinnamon – ½ tsp (I used a pinch of nutmeg powder)
Salt – ¼ tsp (Omit if using salted butter)

  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line muffin tray with liners.
  2. Melt butter and bring to room temperature.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the egg (if using), vanilla extract and mashed banana. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. 
  4. In another large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. Gently fold in the mangoes, making sure they are coated with flour.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are just combined. Do not over mix the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into lined muffin molds. Bake until a tester inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
