Recipe: Cherry Muffins

This is another slightly different muffin…. the batters on these muffin recipes are very similar… what makes each unique is either the fruit used or additions into the batter… for this recipe you can use frozen cherries if you don’t have canned. Thaw them and drain them before using them.

Varieties and possibilities are limitless… all you have to do is experiment… start out by using different fruits… and move on from there… I’m sure your family will have no complaints from the taste testing department… and who knows… you may invent a new family recipe.

In any case… enjoy this terrific muffin recipe!
