Summer and mangoes are synonymous. Mangoes are loved for their sweet and tangy flavour. These mango cupcakes are light and fluffy, with a jammy mango filling and a silky, smooth condensed milk buttercream. They look like egg cupcakes and are perfect for spring, summer, and mango season. You can use fresh or frozen mango for this recipe, as the fruit gets simmered down anyway.

The cupcakes' fluffy vanilla base is created with butter and oil to keep them moist and enhance the vanilla flavour. The mango filling is a homemade mango puree, where the mango simmers on the stovetop until soft. After blending, the puree is chilled before being used in the cupcakes. These cupcakes are excellent for a quick and easy dessert on a busy day.
