Detailed Method of Preparation

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and coconut flakes.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Add the vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract, and whisk until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Gently fold the diced mango into the batter.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. If desired, top each muffin with additional mango cubes and coconut flakes.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  8. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve and enjoy.

Tips for Culinary Success
