Almond cup cakes with whipped topping

It's such a relief that i've finally tried making my evergreen favourite cup cakes. To my surprise, it came out really good. It was moist, tasty and filling. All these days i's collecting the items neccessary for baking , i mean after creating the blog. I've always wanted to make cakes in my kitchen. Today, my desire came true.. It's like i've achieved something which i's afraid of doing it for a long time. I tried decorating cup cakes since this is my first attempt i's not so good at doing so.  I would call it as OK...  For the icing, i used non dairy whipped cream (Cool whip ).This is the recipe i got it from one of the best cooking blog i've been to. I really envy her..she really is talented..she makes such awesome recipes.. Her name is Ree Drummond .. U shud check out her website, it's really cool.... 

Ingredients :

Yields  11 cupcakes

For Cup cake :

1 cup All-purpose Flour
1 1 /4 tsp Baking Powder
 A dash Salt
1/3 cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
100 grams Almond Paste
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 whole Eggs
1/2  cup Milk
1/2 tspVanilla

For Icing :

8 oz /226 gms Cool whip

or else u may go for cream cheese icing ..

Method :

The recipe called for almond paste. I made fresh almond paste since i had plenty in my pantry. What i did was, added the almond and half a cup of water in a bowl and microwaved for a minute. That made the skin  loose. Just peeled the skin and ground the whole almonds into a fine paste by adding little bit of water.

                                                         Fresh almond paste ....

Mix the baking powder ,salt & all  purpose flour . I've already did that. In a mixing bowl add the almond paste, butter and sugar and beat it until it's fluffy , u may have to use a hand/stand mixer for this. Run the mixer for 3 minutes so that it makes light and fluffy.. Just keep the speed in  medium low position. I kept mine in 2 position. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F


Now add the eggs one at a time and beat it well. Now adjust the speed to low and slowly add the flour and milk one at a time .Mix it well.  Drop the vanilla essence too. Run the mixer until all the mixture combines well.

                                                   Finally, Dough is ready

 Now pour 2/3 of the mixture in the muffin pan lined with cupcake covers.

 Keep this in the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. keep an eye on the cake when u cross 15 minutes. Mine took 18 minutes to cook.

 Take the tray out and cool these for few minutes .

                                                Look how moist and soft it is !!!!!

Thaw the Cool whip and add this into the piping bag and start decorating ..

My delicious Almond cup cake whipped topping with a cherry on top is ready to  eat !!!!!!!!!

Haha trying to gobble one  !!!!!
