  1. Step 1:

    Preheat your oven to 190°c (170°c Fan, Gas Mark 5) and line a 12 hole muffin tin with tulip muffin cases.

  2. Step 2:

    Place the ground almonds, golden caster sugar, flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl and stir until they are evenly incorporated. 

  3. Step 3:

    In a seperate bowl beat together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract then gradually pour this into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Beat the mixture together by hand using a whisk or wooden spoon until all of the ingredients have just blended together before adding the oil.

  4. Step 4:

    Grate the marzipan into the mixture then wash, dry and chop the cherries into quarters before folding into the mix. 

  5. Step 5:

    Carefully fill each muffin case 2/3 full with mixture and then place on a middle shelf in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and baked throughout.

  6. Step 6:

    To decorate, mix together the icing sugar with a few drops of water to make a thick icing then gently flick your spoon forward and backwards over your muffin to create a drizzle effect. Sprinkle each muffin with a handful of flaked almonds and top with half a glace cherry.
