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.
Yummy golden muffins topped with cinnamon sugar, best warm out of the oven but good cold too (be sure to wrap them up in plastic wrap so they don't dry out). The secret ingredient that gives these muffins their golden color is butterscotch pudding mix...
This is off the current finecooking.com homepage (recipe contributed by Kathleen Stewart) but I have to share with members here in case they don't visit. This is one of the best muffins I've ever had. The technique is quite different from classic muffin recipes but the result is wonderful. I can't recommend this recipe enough.
This is a really simple muffin recipe. I'm moving away from relying on mixes for things like this. You can make this with canned blueberries if you want, just drain them first, and dust them with some sifted flour so the muffins don't turn blue.
This is a recently adopted recipe of mine. My DS loves blueberry muffins so I had to adopt these for him. I reduced the amount of topping as well as amount of butter in the batter. These remind me of bakery style muffins.
