Fresh Cherry Muffins

September 6, 2018Teresa

Fresh Cherry Muffins are so awesome. I’m a muffin/sweet bread gal anyway, so I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of treats. These lovely muffins are filled with fresh cherries and almond extract. Because they’re made with oil, they’re extremely moist. While I used fresh cherries you can also used canned cherries in this recipe if you rinse and drain them really well before adding to the recipe.

A couple of weeks ago we had a close friend from church undergo knee replacement surgery. Larry worked with John for several years when we first moved to Texas. I tried to talk Jamie, his wife, into letting me bring a meal. They have two of their adult children, spouses and grandkids living with them currently while they are in home renovation and purchasing processes. I assured Jamie I could make a meal that would feed everyone. I asked her, what Larry would like for dessert. She said he really loved cherries.

That got me to thinking. I decided to make an Old-Fashioned Cherry Cobbler for dessert. I still had plenty of cherries leftover after making that dessert. So I threw together these muffins based on my Fresh Strawberry Muffins recipe. I also made them a Chicken Noodle Casserole, a Broccoli and Pearl Onion Casserole, a Creamy Grape Salad, a Greek Tomato Salad and a loaf of Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread. Yes, there was plenty of food. Enough for two meals. They were thrilled.

Jamie said the muffins were her favorite thing from everything they ate, though she loved everything. I knew my Strawberry Muffins had always been wildly popular so I figured these cherry ones would be just as good. I thought they were pretty wonderful, too.

If you’re looking for the most delightful Cherry Muffin recipe, you must make these Fresh Cherry Muffins. They’re terrific for holiday breakfasts like Fourth of July and Labor Day when fresh cherries are in season. Otherwise, use canned cherries and make them throughout the year. Whatever you do, just make them! 🙂
