On his blog “Herzfutter, Essen aus Liebe“, the blogger Björn promises us an original recipe with his spiced mango and shrimps muffins.
For 8 muffins
1 large mango
80g of leeks
110g of flour
1 large teaspoon of baking powder
30ml of colza oil
65g + 200g of cream cheese
1 teaspoon + 2 tablespoons of sugar
1 sachet of vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon of curry
1. Start by peeling the mango, then cut the flesh in cubes. Set aside the half of it (approximately 150g) for the cream. Wash carefully the leek, remove the routs and cut the leek in slices. Remove the stem of the pepper and chop in small pieces. Preheat the oven to 180°C on upper/lower heat mode.
2. Mix the flour with the baking powder. Then thanks to a hand-held mixer, mix the egg, the colza oil and the 65gr of cream cheese. Incorporate the leeks slices, the pepper pieces and the rest of mango. Add the teaspoon of sugar, the curry and a big pinch of salt. Mix everything.
3. Drop some paper muffins moulds and fill with the dough. Cook the muffins for 35 minutes on the middle baking grid until they are nicely browned. Once the cooking is done, let cool down.
4. Whip the 200g of cream cheese with the mango, the vanilla sugar, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt. Fry the shrimps 1 to 2 minutes in a hot frying pan with a bit of oil. Decorate the muffins with some cream and add a shrimp on each muffin.
