I’ve had this recipe since last fall. I’m so excited to try it. I can see so many possibilities this recipe will bring to my future bakings.

This recipe calls for shortening. Sorry, but no way can I go there! Crisco in my cupcakes, or for that matter in my frosting, just doesn’t fly for me. I substituted butter.
Because of the substitution, you need to change the order and method for mixing the batter. Beat the butter and sugar; add the vanilla and eggs. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the juice. You know… like most cupcake recipes out there.
This is a lovely little cupcake. It is light and fluffy and very moist, with the subtle flavor of the mango orange juice and delicate scent of the fruit. I can’t wait to make this recipe again. Bottom line… this recipe is a great basic recipe that should be in everyone’s recipe stash.
The cupcake is so delicious you’ll surprise yourself when you figure out how many cupcakes you’ve eaten. Naughty me… I’ve had three. Yum!
