Orange and Pistachio Cupcakes

Orange and Pistachio Cupcakes!

With a light satisfying texture and delicate orange, raspberry and pistachio flavour: these cupcakes have a distinctly exotic, North African flavour and are very easy to make.

This recipe makes 6 buns.


Set oven to 170C

1 large or 2 small eggs

2 tbsp coconut oil or butter

Zest and juice of one orange

5 large Medjool dates (chopped and pitted)

100g almond flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp ground cardoman

25g pistachios (roughly chopped)

Pinch of salt

6 luscious raspberries


Mix all the moist ingredients including the chopped dates together with a fork

In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients including half of the pistachios

Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well together

Spoon the mixture into cases and set aside for a few minutes

This will allow the baking powder to act

Carefully place a raspberry onto the top of each cupcake and sprinkle over the remaining nuts

Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes til golden and springy.

…….Springy, yum, ENJOY!

Simple and delicious, these cupcakes make a great weekend treat for the whole family.
