Line two muffin tins with cupcake liners. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Cream the butter and castor sugar until light and fluffy. Mix the buttermilk, egg, coconut and mango pieces. Add the other ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and stir through.

Divide the batter among the liners and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and done. Leave the cupcakes

in the pan for a few minutes to cool before turning them out.
