Mango Vegan Cupcakes

1 ripe mango (1 cup of puree)
1/2 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbs corn starch
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 tsp sugar
1 tbs corn starch+ 2 tbs cold water  (to thicken the filling)

Procedure:

1. Preheat oven to 35oF and line muffin pan with cupcake liners
2. Puree the mango and mix with 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Set aside 1/2 cup of this mixture for the cake and reserve the rest for making the filling.
3. Whisk the soy milk and vinegar and set aside for a few minutes.
4. Sift flour, corn starch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix.
5. Using an electric mixer, beat the margarine and sugar for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla, then the 1/2 cup of mango puree mix. It will look a little curdled but do not overmix. It will come together later.
6. Alternate beating in the soy milk mixture and dry ingredients, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times. Mix until just combined.
7. Fill cupcake liners two thirds full and bake for 20-22 minutes. Let them cool completely.
8. Heat 1/2 cup of the reserved mango mixture with 4tsp of sugar (use more or less depending on the sweetness of the mango).
9.  Once it bubbles add the corn starch mixture 1 tbs at a time while stirring until the mixture thickens. You may not need to use all of it. Let it cool completely.
10. Scoop out the middle of each cupcake and fill with spoonful of the filling. Replace the tops of the cupcakes if you wish.
11. Frost with buttercream or anything else!
