Crunchy Almond Muffins


Muffins are simple to make and are delicious to eat. There are variety of flavors of muffins. I love muffins because they are not as sweet as cup cakes.  I was craving for muffins for the past few days. I finally thought I should try something new and I tried this Crunchy Almond Muffin and it was yummy. Surprisingly even my husband who is not a big fan of sweets loved it. Here you go…


  • French vanilla cake mix – 1 1/2 cup
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vegetable oil – 1/4 cup
  • All purpose flour (or maida) – 1/4 cup
  • Brown sugar – 4 tbsp
  • Granulated sugar – 4 tbsp
  • Ground Cinnamon – a pinch
  • Unsalted butter – 2 tbsp
  • Slivered almonds – 1/4 cup

Method of Preparation:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
  2. In a mixing bowl add cake mix, eggs and vegetable oil and combine them using an electric mixer or a hand mixer.
  3. In another bowl mix all the rest of the ingredients except the almonds using a couple of forks.
  4. Finally add the slivered almonds and fold in. This is the topping.
  5. Partially fill in each muffin hole with the cake batter.
  6. Now sprinkle a couple of teaspoon of the  topping over the cake batter as shown in picture.
  7. Now bake for 20 minutes or till it rise up full and cooked.


🙂 Serve hot or warm.
