I just LOVE bakewell tart. It’s a festive recipe, but I love to enjoy them any time of the year! I love mini bakewell tarts more – I don’t have to share 😉

I also love my muffins, so today I have combined the two together to make Bakewell Muffins! This is a perfect recipe if you’re short on time, and cannot make the pastry for bakewell tart. These muffins taste exactly like a bakewell tart, just more cakey, and moist!

You can have these muffins done in 30 minutes, it’s such a quick and easy recipe. And the kids will love helping you with the icing, and Glacé cherries 🙂 These muffins are so fancy, and impressive, they are perfect for parties – kids’, and adults’!

And yes, I’ve even filled these delicious muffins with raspberry jam, for even more bakewell tart-like flavour! If you love bakewell tarts like me, these are the muffins for you.

There is nothing these moist, tender, and delicious muffins are missing in flavour, and looks. They won’t last long at all, certainly not in my house!

Actually, one went missing as I was ‘leaving’ them to cool 😉

But can you blame me? Just look at that jam centre…

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (375g) plain flour
  • 3/4 cup (170g) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (125g) ground almonds
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (100ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Raspberry jam
  • For the Icing
  • 2 cups (250g) icing sugar
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Glacé cherries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Spray or butter a 12-hole muffin pan, then set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground almonds. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil, and almond extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin slots, filling only half way. Spoon a bit of jam into the centres, then pour the rest of the batter over the top. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For the Icing
  6. Whisk together the icing sugar, almond extract, and 1 - 2 tablespoon of water. Add more water if the icing is too thick.
  7. Spoon the icing on top of the cooled muffins, and decorate with Glacé cherries.
