These Amaretto Muffins are one of my new favorites! Everybody that had a chance to taste them raved about the flavor. I used Amaretto liquor in the muffin itself and also a little bit mixed with the sliced almonds in the topping. If you didn’t want to use Amaretto liquor, I’m sure you could use a little bit of almond oil and then more rice milk to make up the difference in liquid from the 1/4 cup of Amaretto
I saw a recipe on Chow.com for Amaretto Pound Cake. It sounded incredible but it had 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of sugar, plus another 3/4 cup of powdered sugar in the glaze. That quantity of butter and sugar is very normal for a pound cake but I wanted to make something a little healthier.
