Poppyseed marzipan muffins

Welcome everyone on 2014. Happy New Year to all !!
This year I would like to welcome you with poppy seed and marzipan muffins. They are really tasty, sweet, moist but not dense with beautiful almond aroma. I would recommend them to everybody.

Ingredients for 9 big or 12 standard size muffins:
  • 140g flour
  • 3 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g marzipan
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g natural yogurt
  • 150g margarine
  • almond flakes to sprinkle
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Grate the marzipan into thick shaves, set aside.

Melt the margarine and set aside to cool down.
In a big bowl mix the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, sugar and marzipan shaves. Set aside.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs with yogurt.

Pour the yogurt mixture, cooled margarine into a bowl with dry ingredients. Stir everything until smooth.

Spoon the batter into paper cases up to 3/4 full. Sprinkle with almond flakes. Bake in preheated oven for about 25 - 30 minutes. Check with skewer if poked in the middle of the muffins comes out clean then muffins are ready. 
Remove form the oven and leave them in the muffin tin until cooled down. 

Enjoy !
