    • 175 g marzipan paste, chopped
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 80 g butter, softened
    • 200 ml buttermilk
    • 80 g caster sugar
    • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Use 2 × 12-hole muffin pans; line with paper cases. Preheat oven to 180°C.
    2. Beat the marzipan, eggs and butter with a wooden spoon until smooth. Gradually mix in the buttermilk, sugar, orange zest and liqueur with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy.
    3. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add marzipan mixture; stir until just combined.
    4. Peel orange very thickly so that white pith is removed. Segment the orange and halve the segments.
    5. Place 1 tsp of mixture in each paper case and place a halved orange segment on top. Add more mixture until cases are two-thirds full. Sprinkle with flaked almonds.
    6. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Place pans on a wire rack; leave muffins to cool.
