So good! Made this to use up some fresh raspberries I had in the fridge. I didn't have any oranges in the house so left out the zest and the topping, but it still made devine cakes, really light and moist and still good a couple of days later. The mixture did overflow some of the cases, but hey a small price to pay for such yum cakes.

Just made these with blackberries which we picked from the park. Used coconut instead of almonds. Great served with a dollop of clotted cream. Yum. Also. This mix made 30 cakes. Neighbours will be pleased.

OMG! First time attempting this recipe, which was an absolute success! Made cakes for a Royal Wedding party, mix blended fresh raspberries with a butter cream frosting to pipe on top and finished with fresh raspberry decoration.

Everybody loved them - highly recommend this one!

delicious! I easily get 18 medium to large muffins out of this recipe and have adapted it using different fruits. Raspberry and white chocolate without the orange, banana and fudge, blueberry, chocolate and orange, and tropical-just swap the milk for coconut milk and add any chopped fresh tropical fruit such as mango or pineapple and use a lemon or lime drizzle or just sprinkle some dessicated coconut on top. Have made them for lots of friends and colleagues and always go down a treat! Make a great gift if you present them in a nice tin or basket.

I agree -these are lovely! I too found that the mixture made 15 good sized muffins which was a bonus for my greedy family!!

Really nice combination.

If you use duck eggs instead they taste amazing.

I made these muffins today with my daughter and they where delicious very moist and tasty. We followed the receipe and we had enough for 15 muffins. We topped some with the orange and sugar and some with White chocolate and a raspberry the rest we left plain. I will defiantly make these again. :-)

Lovely. Used chocolate chips as my boyfriend doesn't like raspberries and added a tsp of vanilla essence instead of the ground almonds.

I'm teaching myself to cook and these are only the second lot of cakes i've ever made. They are DELISH!! I made them exactly to the receipe (I'm not yet skilled enough to substitute ingredients) The raspberrys were lovely and tart against the (very) sweetness of the cake. I've just ate TWO with a cup of tea and i never do that!!!!

I made these with lemon zest instead of orange, then covered them in white chocolate instead of doing the sugar crust. It worked really well.

I substituted the 50g of ground almonds with 50g of dark chocolate chips and also used the extra chips to decorate the tops of the cupcakes (before I put them in the oven). It tasted very nice but in some of the cupcakes (had to do them in batches as I only had a 6-muffin tin and in the end I made 18) the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom. May try with white chocolate next time.

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS
I used fzn rasberries (smashed them up first in a bowl) and added them last.
I filled the cases too much and had a bit of spillage as they rose quite a lot.
Cakes are very moist and delicious.

Will def be making again.
