Cherry Bakewell Cupcakes with Opies

I love cherry and almonds, so obviously cherry bakewells!! I wanted to make some cherry bakewell cupcakes, but I’m a little fussy when it comes to cherries as most just don’t cut it. After some hunting I found the Opies Cocktail Cherries. They don’t have that bitter after taste like your run of the mill shop brought cherries and they cook a lot better in the cakes.

Instructions
  1. Weigh all the ingredients apart from the Extract and Cherries. Add them to a mixture and mix well until smooth.
  2. Pre heat the oven at 190' degrees C Slowly add the Almond extract until it taste the way you like. Remember some does cook out.
  3. Add the Opies cherries to the mixture and mix for another minute until they are all covered. Transfer mixture into cupcake cases and put the tin in the oven.
  4. Transfer the cupcakes using a fork onto a wire cooling rack and leave to cool. Then enjoy!




I have to say that I love having a cupcake a couple of minutes after it has come out the oven. It isn’t too hot, but its just right so that it taste like heaven! I really hope you enjoy this recipe. Try and get at least a couple of cherry halves into each cake, so that everyone will be happy. If you like almond like I do, chuck a little extra in because some of the extract cooks out.

The cherries also make excellent toppers if you’re thinking about icing the cakes afterwards. I mean my icing skills aren’t quite up to scratch but I’m sure yours will look stunning!
