    1. 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. 2
      Combine vinegar and milk in a measuring cup, and let stand.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar,baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
    4. 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. 5
      Add, fruit mixture, milk and vinegar, and coconut, and stir until ingredients are mixed well, but do not overmix.
    6. 6
      Scoop batter into muffins tins; filling about 3/4 full. Use paper liners or just grease well. Sprinkle with coconut if desired.
    7. 7
      Bake for 18-20 minutes at 325 degrees or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
    8. 8
      These freeze well and make a good breakfast on the go or a snack for kid's lunches.

      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!

      I also used sweet potato baby food-- and I couldn't find fresh mango and papaya, but Dole makes a tropical fruit blend in a jar that was a good substitute. The ginger was a little strong-- I'll probaby use just 1/2 tsp next time. I didn't find it to be too sweet with the 3/4 cup sugar. I did have to bake longer, making 18 muffins. After 25 min at 325 they turned out nice and moist. I wonder if using the baby food adds a little more liquid, thus requiring a longer cook time? Anyway, thanks for a tasty muffin!

      I didn't have any mango, so I replaced them with canned pears. I also used sweet potato baby food, so there was very little preparation! Although I used unsweetened coconut, I still found the recipe overly sweet, so I will reduce the brown sugar to 1/2 cup next time. After baking for 30 minutes, it was still a tad undercooked... but my muffins were probably a little big because I only got 12. Very versatile, tasty, and moist muffin! Thanks :)
