I didn't have any papaya, so I used an equal amount of ripe banana & chopped apple in its place, otherwise followed the recipe. These were nice & moist, rose up & golden in about 24 minutes. Made 14 full muffins. Thanks for sharing, next time I hope to be able to have the papaya!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine chopped mango, chopped papaya, 2 tsp flour, ginger and cinnamon in a small bowl. This will help keep the fruit suspended in the batter while it bakes.
  2. Combine vinegar and milk in a measuring cup, and let stand.
  3. In a large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar,baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in vanilla, sweet potato, butter and eggs and stir until just moistened.
  5. Add, fruit mixture, milk and vinegar, and coconut, and stir until ingredients are mixed well, but do not overmix.
  6. Scoop batter into muffins tins; filling about 3/4 full. Use paper liners or just grease well. Sprinkle with coconut if desired.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes at 325 degrees or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  8. These freeze well and make a good breakfast on the go or a snack for kid's lunches.
