Orange almond cupcakes

Spent my morng making some breakfast for the family and baking these cupcakes.
Got my recipe from small small baker!
I baked about 7 big cupcakes with half of the recipe. Although I used the entire orange zest and juice, I still feel that the orange flavour cld be stronger. I guess the addition of vanilla essence wld be good too.

(My edited version)

200g butter, melted
1tbsp vanilla essence
(Garnish)

Method

4. Spoon it into cupcake cases and sprinkle some flaked almonds on top.
5. Bake at 190C for 20 minutes. Remove and cool.
