    HeatherFeather's Note:

    We were very lucky to have once had a home with a cherry tree that produced an abundance of fresh baking cherries. I used to make these muffins a lot when I had fresh cherries on hand, and I kept bags of them in the freezer pre-measured for this recipe. These are not sweet eating cherries - these are baking cherries. The original recipe came from a flyer from the Cherry Marketing Institute.

    1. 1
      While cherries are still frozen, cut them into halves, then set aside to thaw and drain in a mesh colander over a bowl.
    2. 2
      Cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer.
    3. 3
      Add eggs, almond extract, and vanilla and beat well.
    4. 4
      Crush 1/2 cup of the thawed cherries with a fork; add the mashed cherries to the batter.
    5. 5
      Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl.
    6. 6
      Fold half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture using a spatula; do not overmix.
    7. 7
      Add half of the cream or milk, mixing just enough to combine.
    8. 8
      Add remaining flour, then remaining milk; again avoid overmixing.
    9. 9
      Fold in the remaining cherry halves.
    10. 10

      Yummy muffin recipe. I bought frozen cherries from the supermarket, the amount was just over 2 Cups. (muffins were still full of cherries) I really liked the hint of almond flavour throughout the muffin. Next time Im going to add some chopped almonds as well. Delicious!

      Yum! I made these with fresh bing cherries, but otherwise followed the recipe. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar in the bottom of the muffin cups and on top. Fantastic!

      This is a keeper. Easy recipe, great cherry and almond combo taste. And I agree with Evie, next time I might add chopped almonds (maybe on top).
