These almond cupcakes are gluten-free. This recipe makes fool-proof, moist gluten-free cupcakes which are also excellent dessert cupcakes.
Serve with a dollop of cream and sprinkle a few toasted almond flakes on top and this recipe is sure to be a winner. If you decide to serve as a dessert, rather than as cupcakes, you can heavily butter the cupcake trays and not use cupcake papers and the mixture won't stick to the side of the pans.
If you are serving as a cupcake, I would recommend icing with an orange glace frosting. For a lighter, glaze-like frosting, add orange juice to confectioners sugar (icing sugar) until it is of a spreadable consistency and spread thinly over the top of each cupcake.
Alternatively, there is enough flavor and texture in the cupcake mixture that a light dusting of confectioners sugar is perhaps all that is needed.
This is a rather dense cupcake but it is really delicious. You will discover that one almond and orange cupcake is never enough!
