These taste delicious! I baked them in a silicone baking sheet which I bought from Pampered Chef, it had 12 seperate moulds each in a different floral design. These cakes popped out and look amazing as well as tasting great. Might add a few blueberries next time.

I've made these several times and they always come out beautifully, even without raspberrries and drizzle. I even manage to get 24 out of one batch. I usually substitute 1 tbsp of milk for 1 tbsp of orange or lemon juice. Top marks for this recipe!!!

Really delicious and so easy . Tried them out on our Spanish friends at a recent party and they loved them.
Will definately be making them again and varying the ingredients to ring the changes.

Loved them, but definitely only for a treat as so high in fat.

These were absolutely yummy! Instead of the rasberry and orange I added vanilla extract and lemon rind to the mixture. Once baked and cooled I cut a hole in the centre and filled with wipped cream mixed with lemon curd. Will definately be using the recipe again

Blimey, sounds like i've got to try these - as a regular cup-cake baker, i'm baking 3-4 batches this week, some for my daughter to take to school, some for my husband to take to work and i'll think i'm going to make an extra batch just for me!

This was the best cupcake I ever tasted. I tried several recipes through the years, but all were using just a bit of butter (some even suggested vegetable oil), 1 or 2 eggs at most, and lots of milk.

Well, this recipe is different, and the result was a really tasty, moist cake! I replaced the ground almonds with 1 tbsp of unsweetened Dutch cocoa, and the raspberries with 100 g dark chocolate with marinated orange zest (Côte d'Or). It was delicious! This is now my special chocolate and orange cupcake. Everyone loves it. :) Thank you!

I tried these with blackberries and grated apple and left out the orange drizzle - they were delicious and didn't hang about the house for long!
