It’s just another Manic Monday…oh oh oh oh…I wish it was Sunday…oh oh oh oh…that’s my fun day…oh oh oh oh…my I don’t have to run day. It’s just another Manic Monday.
Now it should really be stuck in your mind. Maybe it’ll drown out your to-do lists and your oh shit replays (Did I pack the towel in the camp bag? Did I reset the dryer? Oh shit I have to go check!) so you can fall asleep faster. You can thank your favorite ’80s girl later.Anyway, I wanted you to know that I have officially made it as a Mommy blogger. Because of you, my fabulous readers, Mango.org sent me six mangoes to make some dishes. You’d think I got six pairs of Jimmy Choos hand-delivered by The Bangles themselves if you could have seen my face opening the package. I am just a
I am offering up lots of mango goodness this week in celebration of my sweet and succulent shipment. My son has loved mangoes since birth because I ate his weight in them during my pregnancy, and I am not ashamed to admit it (though I may shy away when asked how many ice cream sundaes I consumed, but that’s another story).
I made Mango Muffins with Crumb Topping with Alex this morning (he gets up early and baking is a great way to start the day in my house!). Both of my kids wolfed one down before camp, and loved them! Happy Mango Monday!
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup of diced mangoes
Crumb Topping Ingredients
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl, beat egg with a fork. Stir in milk and oil. Pour all at once into the well in the flour mixture. Mix quickly and lightly with a fork until moistened, but do not beat. The batter will be lumpy. Stir in the mangoes. Pour the batter into paper-lined muffin pan cups.
Prepare the crumb topping by mixing the brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon together with a fork or your hands. It should look like crumbs when thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle over the muffin batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Enjoy!
