It's Chai Time ~ Almond Cupcakes / Muffins / Tarts

These almond cupcakes or whatever you wanna call them are super soft, moist and delicious. I'm not pretty sure if the dark chocolate on the top goes very well with the flavor of almonds, probably I'm going to skip it the next time. 

Almond 'Cupcakes'

1 3/4 cups flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 cups sugar
100gm ground almonds
100-200gm chopped almonds (as much as desired)
3/4 cup oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup plain yogurt (low fat)
Optional: almond flavor, vanilla flavor

Preheat oven to 175degC. Combine flour, baking powder, ground almonds, chopped almonds and whisk well. Whisk together eggs, oil, sugar and yogurt. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Fill into 12 buttered muffin forms. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes until done. 
Decorate with melted chocolate, chocolate ganache or cream cheese frosting, if desired.
