For the quick all-in-one crumbly almond cupcakes, you will need:

[This recipe makes 12 regular size/medium cupcakes]

100g Stork Margarine [tub]
50g brown sugar
4 eggs
125g self raising flour
125g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon honey or agave
the seeds of 1/2 pod vanilla
a pinch of salt

  • Optional: 1/4 of a cherry or an almond to top the cupcakes
  • Cooking Spray, paper cases and a muffin tin
  • Electric mixer [I use hand held for this recipe]

Preheat the oven to 170C.

Simply place all the ingredients in a large bowl and use an electric mixer to combine the ingredients together until you have a consistent soft and smooth paste. Once your mixture appears even, stop beating and use a spoon to fill the paper cases. Top with half a cherry and bake in a preheated for 25 minutes.

  • As soon as you mix them, test for a dropping consistency. Add water, a tablespoon at a time to achieve a dropping consistency if necessary and immediately fill up the papercases. Place in a hot preheated oven with as little delay as possible.
  • For gluten free cupcakes use a ready made gluten free self-raising flour mix
  • For a lactose free diet use a plant-based milk
  • For a vegan recipe, use a plant based milk and replace the eggs with 4 tablespoons of linseed ground with 12 tablespoons of water and use agave instead of honey
