Mini cupcakes – perfect for little hands…
I used my mums cupcakes recipe here but substituted the huge amounts of sugar with mashed banana and honey. It worked a treat. H loved them. The mango on top is lovely paired with the banana and they are light and fluffy.
They are super easy to make and it almost all happens in the one bowl – so get the kids involved. I used a mini muffin tin as they are just the right size for kids. If mangos aren’t in season try apple, pear, or add a handful of dark chocolate chips.
