Ingredients

  • 2 C flour
  • 1 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3/4 C butter room temperature
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 C plain yogurt
  • 2 t mango extract
  • 1 C mango juice Check the label on your juice. It's hard to find 100% mango juice. If you can, that is best. But, if not, a mango juice blend would also work.
  • Dulce de leche to taste (see my post on how to make dulce de leche)

Instructions

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl.
  • Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, yogurt, and mango extract until blended.
  • Alternately fold in flour mixture and mango juice, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the cupcake clean.
  • Top with dulce de leche and either:
  • Eat fast, using your tongue to keep up with anything that drips down the side.
  • Save them to turn into Cupcakes Wellington.
