Sweet Almond Cupcakes

Hello Everyone!

Here is the recipe for the cupcakes from the baby shower:



Sweet Almond Cupcakes

Ingredients:

1/3 cup almonds slices
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup honey
1 large egg
1 tbs Nutella
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup orange juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and honey together.
  3. Beat in egg and Nutella.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix baking powder and flour.  In another bowl, mix milk orange juice and vanilla.
  5. Add ingredients alternating between dry and wet.
  6. Fold in almond slices.
  7. Spoon batter into lined muffin pans and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Note:  If you have the opportunity to buy honey from a farm versus the store, go for it.  You will not believe how much better it tastes.  

I topped these cupcakes with a basic vanilla frosting.

Enjoy!
