Mango Cupcakes with Greek Yogurt

November 14, 2015 / 24 Comments

These cupcakes are so tropical. Rich Coconut and Mango Cupcakes with a hint of a lemon buttercream. Is there anything better? I know that winter is coming, but I couldn’t resist baking something more refreshing. I noticed some gorgeous mangos in the grocery store, and immediately wanted to carry them into my recipe. Decided to pair them with desiccated coconut flakes.

Also, I’ve never baked with a greek yogurt before, so decided to give it a try as well! Cupcakes turned out to be moist, not oversweet – delicious! You should definitely give this recipe a try!

Mango cupcakes:

  • 2 eggs,
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 stick of butter,
  • 10 tbs greek yogurt,
  • 2 cups flour,
  •  1 1/3 cup sugar,
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut,
  • 2 tsp baking powder,
  • 1/3 tbs baking soda,
  • 3-3 tbs lemon juice
  • pinch of salt


  • 2 cups butter,

  4. Add the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and beat on medium speed.
  5. Fill each prepared cupcake liner about 3/4 full.
