  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease 10 holes of two 6-hole, ½ cup (125ml) silicone muffin pans. Use an electric mixer to whisk eggs and sugar in a bowl until pale and thick. Add yoghurt, butter and lemon rind. Whisk to combine. Add the almond meal, flour, baking powder and three-quarters of raspberry. Use a large metal spoon to fold until just combined.
  2. Step 2

    Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared pans. Bake for 25 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Set aside in the pans for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the icing sugar and enough lemon juice in a bowl to make a smooth paste. Spoon over the cakes. Top with flaked almonds and remaining raspberry. Dust with extra icing sugar.
