*Professional chefs and bakers around the North America agree that Boyajian Almond Extract is one of the best. Use this all natural Almond Extract to make delicious macaroons, biscotti or with any creative baking. Speaking of creative baking, chocolate covered marzipan isn’t just for eating! Marzipan (or almond paste) may also be used as a cake ingredient, as in stollen (today’s feature recipe)! Both of these featured ingredients would be a great stocking stuffer for a creative baker!
Ingredients
  • ½ c. butter
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 1 tsp Boyajian almond extract
  • ½ c. dried cranberries
  • ½ c. mixed peel
  • ½ c. raisins
  • 1 50 g. bar of chocolate marzipan, diced
  • 1 ½ c. self-raising flour
  • ½ c. ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 large handful of flaked almonds
Instructions
  1. Cream together butter & sugar. In a separate bowl whisk eggs, milk, brandy & extract together. In a third bowl, add cranberries, peel, raisins & marzipan. Sprinkle a little flour in & mix it around to coat. This stops it sinking to the bottom of the muffins while they are baking. Combine egg mixture into creamed butter, add flour, ground almonds, baking soda, cinnamon & nutmeg. Pour into 12 muffin cups & sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown on top & a skewer inserted comes out clean.
