Amaretto Cupcakes with Amaretto Whipped Cream

Amaretto cupcakes are like a gooey butter cake crossed with a biscotti and topped with boozy whipped cream.  Don’t expect these cupcakes to be innocent cupcakes of yesteryear, airy with light crumbs.  These cupcakes are sticky and down and dirty.  You’ll be licking your fingers and begging for more.


Amaretto Cupcake Recipe

I got the almond amaretto cupcake recipe by converting a flourless almond cake recipe from Mish Delish to cupcakes.  I slightly adjusted the quantities and converted the recipe from metric to U.S. measurements.
I should also point out that this cupcake is gluten-free!

Cupcake Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/3 cup caster sugar I used C&H Baker's Sugar, which can be found more easily in U.S. grocery stores. It's a very fine granulated sugar.
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur

Amaretto Whipped Cream Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp Amaretto liqueur
  • sliced almonds optional


Cupcake Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan (or the microwave) and set aside to cool.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the almond meal, salt, and sugar until well combined.
  • In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, and Amaretto until combined.
  • Add the cooled melted butter to the wet ingredients.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  • Divide mixture evenly between 12 cupcake liners.
  • Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned and bounce back when lightly touched.

Amaretto Whipped Cream Instructions

  • Whip heavy whipping cream until it looks like whipped cream.
  • Mix in powdered sugar and Amaretto until just combined.
  • Pipe or spread on cooled cupcakes.
  • Optionally, top cupcakes with almond slices.
