These almond and fresh apricot muffins are incredibly moist and fluffy. Golden brown muffins are baked to perfection and come with a lovely golden crumb and a soft and airy interior. The ‘’cherry’’ of this recipe is beautifully baked sugar apricots on top. Quick and easy recipe ready in 30 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until they become smooth. Gradually add the eggs one at a time, beating until the mixture becomes fluffy.
Stir in the almond extract, yogurt, and orange zest. Gently fold in the flour, baking powder, and salt, being careful not to overmix to avoid dryness and stickiness in the muffins.
Now, evenly distribute the muffin batter among the 12 muffin cups, placing one apricot half on top of each.
Sprinkle a bit of granulated sugar on the top of each muffin.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes, and check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into a muffin; it should come out clean when they're ready. Enjoy warm!
