If Making Muffins:
Bake in greased muffin tins (or use baking cups) for about 20-22 minutes. This recipe will make about 16 muffins.
If Making Mini Muffins:
Bake in greased mini muffin tin (or use mini baking cups) for about 11-13 minutes. This recipe will make about 48 mini muffins.
To make optional glaze:
Mix together powdered sugar with milk and almond extract until smooth. Drizzle on top of muffins or loaf of bread. I like to put the glaze on while the muffins are still warm so that it melts into the bread.
- The glaze on top is optional they taste great with or without it.
