Cupcakes

Photobucket

I discovered this recipe by accident whilst trying to make a 'dessert pizza' from someone else's blog, they're not bad if you don't mind the taste of almond meal

1 cup almond meal
2 tbsp chopped pine nuts
2 tbsp splenda
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp oil

*Mix ingredients together with a fork then spoon mixture into patty cakes
*Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200c
*Bake for around 15 minutes or until they go slightly brown and springy to touch
*Remove from oven and let them cool

Topping
Cream cheese
1/2 cup splenda
1 tbsp vanilla essence

*Beat mixture until smooth and dollop over cooled cupcakes
*Top with a strawberry quarter

These are nicer when they have been refrigerated and the topping has cooled

Now the original recipe I was trying to follow is here.......

.....and this is how my version turned out when I followed the recipe properly :) though it doesn't look anywhere as good as the original
