Mango Saffron Breakfast muffins

In a world of breakfast muffins, one can find a lot of flavors, different flavor combinations, frosted muffins, cupcakes etc.,

Today’s recipe is one unique and utterly delicious flavor combination that will leave you mesmerized.

I have called it as muffins, although I’ve used butter in the batter, but feel free to drizzle a glaze or frost them.

Just so we get the original flavor, I have left them without even a sugar dusting making them fit to be spread with some jam and eaten as whole.

So today’s recipe is Mango Saffron Breakfast muffins.

A unique combination, really and the sugar used is lesser than my regular use – I just wanted to let the natural fruit sugar talk for itself and trust me, it will be sweet if you use good quality mangoes.

Before we go to the recipe, I want to insist you do not skip the saffron as the spice lends a subtle flavor to the muffins and the color.. the color is what we are hoping for. A fantastic yellow hue, totally unique to the use saffron is the ultimate joy of baking these muffins. Hope you all try it and enjoy.
