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 :)

Ok I wanted to try one more recipe for RSC#8 and I was in the mood for muffins. So during my baking spree I tried these. I love anything with mango, never really tried too many recipes with papayas though. These were so moist and flavorful, just an incredible muffin and easy to work with. I has some sweet potatoe frozen on hand to use up also. I think this will be a very popular muffin recipe here on zaar. I loved em !!

Quite tasty and easy to make. I used a brown sugar substitute as I am diabetic and would like to substitute applesauce for the butter the next time to lower the fat content. My three year old grandson asked for seconds!!
