Behold everyone! Fuss free egg-less vanilla cupcakes with Mango buttercream- incredibly moist vanilla cupcakes topped with fluffy and delicious buttercream infused with the fresh flavor of mango!
Mango season is on and I am sure that you guys also must be making the most of it. It's my favorite time of the year! I can't begin to tell you guys how happy I get at the very first sight of season's first mangoes. Just this last week I shared Barbecue broccoli and chickpea buddha bowl with mango salsa and today I am sharing this insanely easy and moreish cupcake recipe to spread some more joy in your otherwise quarantined life at home.
These cupcakes are probably one of my best dessert recipe ever and will become your favorite dessert this summer. Soft, moist, egg-less, easy and bursting with the fresh flavor of mango. They just melt in your mouth. This recipe is absolutely fuss free - hand whisk is used to make cupcake batter and buttercream. I have spread buttercream with the help of a spoon, like I said- simple and fuss free!
(Please go ahead and use electric beater if you don't have a hand whisk)
It's made with just 9 basic ingredients and so darn easy that literally my 3.5 year old daughter made these cupcakes. I am not kidding, for real! Best part about this recipe is it's very quick. You'll be surprised how easily these cupcakes come together!
I love love love cupcakes! They are little moist bundle of joy adorned with delicious frostings. You should try Dark chocolate cupcakes and Coffee cupcakes with coffee buttercream too from the blog. It's surprising how I have not shared recipe of vanilla cupcakes before. They are kid's favorite and a great base for using any frosting like whipped cream, nutella buttercream, coffee buttercream, cream cheese frosting or chocolate ganache. I have used oil and yogurt in this recipe which have made these cupcakes extremely soft and moist.

Egg-less Vanilla cupcakes with mango buttercream- a must try during Mango season!
Serving: 6 cupcakes
1/4th cup cooking oil
1/3rd cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup yogurt
3/4th cup flour ( maida)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp water
100 gm butter (I used Amul)
5 Tbsp icing sugar (Use 4 Tbsp if using unsalted butter)
1 medium sized mango -pureed
Additional chopped mangoes for garnish
Pre heat oven at 175 degrees and line cupcake pan with liners.
Mix together dry ingredients flour (maida), baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, start preparing cupcake batter by whisking together powdered sugar and oil till the mixture is slightly pale.
Now add in dry ingredients along with yogurt and whisk till well combined.
Lastly, add vanilla essence and loosen the batter slightly with water and whisk together again.
Divide batter equally among all the cups in the cupcake tray and give a pat to even out the batter.
Bake in oven at 175 degrees for 10 minutes and then at 160 degrees for another 7-8 mins or till done and skewer comes out clean.
To make the mango buttercream, puree one chopped mango in a blender ( Any mango will do- Alphonso, Badam, Langda, Pairee) and cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes till it reduces and becomes slightly thick.
While mango puree is reducing, whisk semi soft butter in a bowl till pale, light and fluffy.
Next add powdered sugar and whisk again to combine properly.
Once the sugar is combined well into butter, your basic buttercream is ready to which you can add flavors like vanilla, coffee, nutella, mint essence to make flavored buttercream and frost cakes and cupcakes. (Refer the picture below).
Add reduced and cooled mango puree into the buttercream and gently mix to incorporate properly.
Mango buttercream is ready!
Spread mango buttercream on cooled cupcakes and make spikes using back of the spoon. Garnish with finely chopped mangoes and serve (You can also add buttercream in piping bag and frost cupcakes using different nozzles).
