directions

  • Preheat oven at 180°C.
  • Mix dark brown sugar and butter (or oil-butter mixture) until creamy.
  • Add eggs and mix until very fluffy.
  • Cube Marzipan and soften in microwave (about 20-30 sec. at 700 Watt). You don't need to do this, but the handling is way easier.
  • Incorporate marzipan, cinnamon, pinch of salt and vanilla extract into egg-butter-sugar mixture.
  • Add ground almonds.
  • Mix baking powder with flour and add to dough. Mix thoroughly.
  • Butter a cake pan or cupcake tin and transfer dough to it.
  • Bake at 180°C for about 45 minutes (cake) or 20 minutes (cupcakes).
  • Let cupcakes cool for 10 minutes.
  • Mix lemon juice and icing sugar until a thick paste forms. Glaze cooled cupcakes as you like.

    Definitely amazing. I just finished baking the cake and whole kitchen smells like almond dream. Final result is a moist cake with a nice touch of marzipan. I used IKEA's marzipan, it has not very intense taste as sole but I think it was enough to give a good almond aroma to whole cake. I used the exact amount of ingredients and it was enough to fill 6 small cupcake tins and a medium cake tin.

    I did not added almond crush instead I added 100 grams of bitter chocolate crunches.

    Nice and moist. Not a very sweet cupcake. They also didn't taste super almondy to me. Next time I might sub in almond extract for the vanilla. I wasn't crazy about the ground almonds and the texture they added, but that's just me. Overall a nice treat. I did really like the lemonglaze and thought it turned out better than other glazes I've made. They are very pretty. I can't find my camera, or I would post a pic. I think they would be nice at a shower or at a fancy luncheon or tea. Made for PAC Spring 2013. Update: Found my camera and was able to snap a pic before the cupcakes disappeared. Yeah! I must also add that this really is a VERY moist cupcake.
