A favourite flavour of my family is almond.. almond anything.. found a recipe in Canadian Living for these cupcakes, just had to try.
The cupcakes are rich , buttery, moist , plain yummy.
1/2 cup butter, soft
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
In large bowl beat butter and sugar til fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time. Add almond extract. In separate bowl whisk together almonds, flour, salt and baking powder. Stir into butter mixture alternate with milk, 3 dry 2 wet. Spoon into paper lined muffin cups.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Let cool, ice.
I used a simple butter icing tinted lavender. Thought the colour goes well with almond flavour.. sprinkled with glitter sugar...
This recipe is a keeper.
