Can we ever grow out of cakes and muffins? I haven’t been able to do so. I have lived for over 4 decades now and the fascination of cakes and muffins has lived on. It won’t be wrong to say that it has grown over the years. Sadly, moderation has to be exercised.
That, however, does deter me from baking. And also from trying out something different occasionally. There is a lot of emphasis on healthy eating, due to obvious reasons, so my muffins also try to keep up with the trend. Almonds are healthy and hence a good idea to include them into the cake or muffin mix.
How do I include almonds in my cakes? I roast them on a hot girdle. When cool, I grind them. This powder can be easily added to cake mixes.
Adding roasted and powdered almond not only adds a healthy twist to the muffin but also gives it a nutty flavour and a grainy texture.
*Notes: After measuring 1 cup of wholewheat flour take out 2 tablespoons. We will replace these 2 tablespoons of flour with 2 tablespoons of almond powder.
