Notes | FAQ

- Cooking time would vary based on oven setting. So adjust cooking time accordingly.
- Adding 1 Tbsp mango puree in frosting will give a thick frosting with a mild mango flavor. Adding 2 Tbsp mango puree will give a thinner frosting with a strong mango flavor. Add as per your preference.
- You can use mango puree from a can. But if you like to use fresh mangoes, remove the skin and seed of the mangoes and then chop up the pulp of the mango. Then use a mixie/blender to grind it into a smooth paste. Make sure that there are no lumps.
- Do not beat while mixing the wet and dry ingredients. Fold it gently.
- You can also use All purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour.
- The cupcake itself is vegan if using vegan butter or oil, however the frosting is not vegan. Vegans can use a Vegan frosting or skip it.
