A while ago I made these almond flavoured cupcakes and never got round to sharing the recipe so I thought I would share it here now.
What you need
60g butter/margarine (room temperature)
100g caster sugar
2 egg
1/2tsp almond flavoring
70g self-raising flour
100g ground almonds

What to do...
Preheat oven to 180°C/325°F/Gas 5

In a bowl mix together the butter and sugar until well mixed.. add the eggs and mix well

Add in the almond flavoring and the ground almonds, mix until well combined

Sift in the flour and mix well, this is where you can add more almond flavoring depending on your personal taste

Spoon the mixture into paper cases making sure they are only half full

Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and cooked though (you could use a cake skewer to check they are fully cooked)

Leave them to cool on a wire rack

For the Icing
Icing Sugar
Almond Flavoring

Add the butter to the bowl and mix until smooth and fluffy

Sift in the icing sugar and mix well

Add the almond flavoring and mix until well combined

Add the mixture to a piping bag and decorate how you wish.
