  3. Quickly whisk the eggs, add the milk and melted butter.
  4. Mix the liquid ingredients with the dry ones, leaving the compound quite grainy.

  7. Leave to cool and serve.

Chef's tip

Try replacing the peeled almonds with unpeeled ones: you will have darker muffins with a stronger taste. For a touch of colour and different taste, add berries to the ingredients.

Serving suggestion

These muffins are great with a cup of tea. 

Wine selection

Asti spumante DOCG, Moscato Provincia di Pavia or other sweet dessert wines.

Family tip

Create your own recipe-variations! For instance, you can add dried cranberries or raisins to the dough.

Dish history

There’s something magical about warm homemade muffins for breakfast! This particular recipe, which calls for almonds and ginger, will leave a breath-taking aroma in your kitchen. The nutty, sweet taste of almonds, together with the slightly hot and spicy note of the ginger, make a perfect combination. If you are a ginger-fan you can even add a couple of drops of its freshly extracted juice: just grate some ginger and squeeze it over the dough. Yum! Enjoy these dainties at breakfast time with a cappuccino or tea, or save it for an afternoon snack. Children will love it too!
