Cherry Almond Cupcake

Market is flooded with cherries these days. The weather is also pleasant. So there is no excuse for not baking these delicious Cherry Almond Cupcakes.

Enjoy them with a cup of Coffee. Ideal for kids too after a hectic online schedule.

This recipe gives 9 Cupcakes.

I have used raw sugar as I don't use white sugar at all. Feel free to replace it with castor sugar.

Keep the yogurt on a sieve for sometime to drain off all liquid. We are looking for thick yogurt here..

All ingredients should be at room temperature.
