Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk the eggs, milk, 1 1/2 sticks melted butter, the almond paste and vanilla in a large bowl (it?s OK if the almond paste is still a little chunky). Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir until combined. Stir in the candied citrus peel.

Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling them three-quarters of the way. Top evenly with the candied cherries. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the muffins cool 5 minutes in the pan, then remove to a rack.

Warm the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter in the microwave. Brush the muffins with the butter while still warm, then dust with confectioners' sugar. Let cool completely.
