Vanilla Cupcakes with Mango Cream Frosting (Eggless)

Mangoes and Anagha's favorite fruit. And she has been asking me to make cupcakes for her since quite some time now. When R brought a few mangoes I thought of doing this..

You need:
For the cup cake
All purpose flour - 3/4 cup 
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Butter - 1/4 cup
Curds - 3/4 cup
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Milk - 2 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp

Mango Buttercream Frosting
Confectioners Sugar - 2 cups sifted
Butter - 1/4 cup at room temp
Mango Puree - 1/3 cup

Pre-heat oven at 180C/360F.
Line the muffin tray and keep it ready.
Sift the dry ingredients - Flour and baking powder
Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy
Add in vanilla extract
Add in curds and pulse on low till everything is mixed well
Add flour and milk alternatively, starting and ending with flour
Spoon equal amounts of batter into readied muffin pans filling 3/4th of each cup
Bake for 20 - 25 mins till the tooth pick test comes clean
Cool in pan 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. While cupcakes are cooling, prepare frosting

Mango Buttercream:
Cream the butter for several minutes until very light and fluffy.
Add mango puree and Whip until combined.
Slowly add the confectioners sugar until the frosting becomes thicker and stiff and you get piping consistency

Fill piping bag with the frosting and pipe large swirls on top of cooled cupcakes


you get 6 medium sized cupcakes with this mixture
