These tropical mango blueberry muffins will brighten up your morning, or sweetly accompany your afternoon coffee. Mango and blueberry pair well together, and the lime lends a nice burst of citrus. A touch of almond flavoring brings out all three fruit flavors. The puréed mango adds moisture to these muffins, and they keep for several days in the refrigerator.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line muffin tin with paper liners (enough for 12 muffins).
  3. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugars together in a large bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and almond flavoring.
  5. In a blender or food processor, purée the mango with the lime juice until smooth.
  6. Gently mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just barely mixed.
  7. Fold in the mango purée until just barely mixed.
  8. Toss the blueberries with 2 tablespoons flour and gently fold in blueberries.
  9. Fill muffin tins with about 1/3 cup batter, or almost to the top.
  10. Bake at 425 for 5 minutes, then lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes.
  11. Check for doneness: muffins should be domed on top and spring back to the touch. If they do not spring back, bake for 5 minutes more, or until done.
  12. Cool in pan on a rack.
  13. Make the glaze: Melt the butter, and gently whisk in 1/2 of the powdered sugar.
  14. Add the flavorings and the other half of the powdered sugar. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze has a slightly runny consistency.
  15. Place the glaze in a bowl. Dip the tops of the muffins in the glaze. Sprinkle muffins with coconut and sliced almonds if desired.
