Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup(s) Natural almonds, with
skin toasted
lightly cooled
and ground fine in
a blender
1 1/4 Teaspoon(s) Double-acting baking powder
1/3 Cup(s) Vegetable shortening
1/2 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract
1/3 Cup(s) Water
1 Cup(s) Plus 2 tablespoons
confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter, softened
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Freshly grated orange zest
1 Tablespoon(s) Orange juice
In a bowl whisk together the flour, the almonds, the baking powder,
and a pinch of salt. In another bowl with an electric mixer cream
together the shortening and the granulated sugar, beat in the egg and
the almond extract, and beat in the flour mixture alternately with the
water, beating well after each addition. Divide the batter among 12
paper-lined 1/2-cup muffin tins and bake the cupcakes in the middle of
a preheated 350&#176:F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a tester
comes out clean. Turn the cupcakes out onto a rack and let them cool
completely. In another bowl beat together the confectioners' sugar,
the butter, the zest, and the juice, beating until the icing is
fluffy, and spread the icing on the cupcakes. Makes 12 cupcakes.
