Description

Wintertime means fresh citrus. Made with almond flour, these gluten free cupcakes make a great wintertime treat. Combining the flavors of fresh orange juice and zest with the nutty flavor of almond into the cupcake batter, each cupcake is topped with an orange glaze after baking. If you do not have a cupcake pan, you can also make this into a sheet cake using a square or rectangular cake pan.
