These from-scratch Cherry Funfetti Almond Cupcakes combine the sweet cherry flavor with the buttery almonds. It’s such a fun way to change up your classic Funfetti cupcake.
Have I mentioned how much I love sprinkles? I would put sprinkles in just about any dessert, BUT I happen to live with a human being who doesn’t care too much for sprinkles. It’s not like he would turn down a slice of chocolate cake if it has sprinkles on it, but he just doesn’t prefer them. So that means these Cherry Funfetti Almond Cupcakes are all mine.
I have baked up these cupcakes over at the Better Homes and Gardens blog, Delish Dish. This recipe started as a Cherry-Almond Vanilla Cupcakes, but I’ve taken it upon myself to make a few adjustments. I consider this recipe funfetti-ed.
When it comes to baking from scratch, I love to try a variety of different recipes to find my favorite. What I love about this cupcake is the combination of the vanilla and almond extract and the rich buttermilk tones. I’ve made a few adjustments to the original recipe, but you’ll have to read more about it over at Delish Dish, see the Cherry Funfetti Almond Cupcakes post!
I think you guys also know I am a converted frosting lover. When I was growing up, I couldn’t care less about the frosting, and usually shoved it to the side of my plate. Then I learned to make my own frosting, and it changed my world! Every now and again it’s nice to discover new frosting recipes. The cherry frosting on these cupcake uses a bit of the juice from the maraschino cherries for the flavor. It’s a great compliment for the almond cupcake.
If you don’t like to use almond extract, don’t worry, just replace the almond extract with the vanilla extract.
