Marzipan cupcakes

Those moist, fluffy marzipan cupcakes are very delicious. This time I prepared them for Easter. 
This thing on top of each cupcake supposed to be a chick or duckling but for some reason it looks like something between very slim goose or dove :). Things happen :(. 

Ingredients for 8 cupcakes:
  • 90g flour
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 90g soft butter or margarine
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract 
  • 40g marzipan
 Preheat the oven to 190C. Line muffin tins with muffin cases.

Dice or shred the marzipan and set aside.

Sift the flours, baking powder into a electric mixer bowl. Add the butter, sugar, eggs and almond extract and beat until smooth. Fold in the marzipan chunks. 

Spoon the batter into paper cases 3/4 full.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until well risen and golden. 

Transfer to the wire rack to cool down.

To decorate melt the chocolate an pour over each cupcake. Then when chocolate starts setting stick to it edible decorations made off the marzipan. 

Enjoy !

Happy Easter !!
