I’m beginning to see cherries in the market and my Cherry Vanilla Muffins would be a delicious way to incorporate them into your daily meals.
After gorging myself on cherries every night for the past few days, I finally decided to bake something while I still had a few on hand. I didn’t want to make anything too decadent or sweet today so I turned to muffins, or as I like to think of them “almost cupcakes”
I have a good go-to recipe for muffins, which has seen quite a few variations over the years and has yet to fail me. The muffins were perfect, a delightful crumb, not too sweet with just a little bit of crunch on the exterior.
Feel free to change them up a bit, but the base recipe is a keeper and should be filed away for further use.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
These little muffins truly are a wonderful treat, they freeze well and can provide a much better start to your day than some store-made over-processed version. If you don’t have cherries try peaches, nectarines, or berries…..just try them.
One thing I do is measure out all my dry ingredients and have a few sets made up in zip-lock bags ready to go. That way when I stumble out of bed, it’s not such a chore to make the muffins and have them ready for breakfast by the time my wife gets up. If you have fruit to prep do it the night before too!
