Mango & Lime Muffins

I recently got sent some of Urban Fruit's products to try out in my baking. They make dried fruit that they gently bake at low temperatures and they never add any extra sugars. You can pretty much do anything with their products that you like, my ideas are bake with it, add it to cereal or yoghurt, or eat it as a healthy snack! Of course baking with it is what I did and I thought lime was a fabulous tropical flavour to pair with the mango.

The selection of strawberry and mango fruits I received. They do 90g and 35g packs.

I started by creaming together 175g caster sugar, 175g butter and the zest of 2 and a half limes. Keep the remaining half for garnishing.

I added 3 large eggs and 1 tsp vanilla extract and whisked in.

Then I folded in 175g self raising flour. And finally added 105g of the Urban Fruit dried mango, I cut any larger pieces in half.

I divided the mixture between 12 muffin cases and baked on 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 20 minutes.

To decorate I melted 60g white chocolate and drizzled it over the muffins. Then I garnished with the leftover half of lime zest.


Here's a little video to show you my drizzling technique!

The muffins were really fresh and delicious. I loved the lime flavour, and the mango gave them a nice texture. It didn't have a strong mango flavour, it was quite mild but tasty all the same! They certainly got eaten up fast.

Check out my blog post on the Double Chocolate & Strawberry Muffins I made with the strawberry Urban Fruit!

I'm entering these into myself and Cakeyboi's monthly baking challenge Treat Petite. This month the theme is 'Let's Get Fruity!'
