Super Tuesday Almond Apricot Cupcakes

Almond Apricot Cupcakes, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

These are also known as "please neighbor stop shining your light into our bedroom window" cupcakes. We'll see if they work.

These are from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (of course). The recipe calls for almond meal, but we used chestnut flour in place of almond meal. Because there is a ton of almond extract in these, they still taste almondy, but have a lovely earthy taste. I used about a 1/4 cup less sugar than what was called for and I am glad I did because they are plenty sweet with the jam on top. A 1/2 teaspoon of jam is baked into the top and then they are glazed with more warmed apricot jam.
