Fantastic muffins! I made them with fresh cherries instead of frozen, and they turned out wonderfully. I also subbed 1/4 cup vanilla falvoured coffee creamer + 1/4 cup skim milk for the light cream. The recipe yielded 12 large muffins for me - I probably could have squeezed 18 smaller muffins out of the recipe if I wanted to, but I like the larger version. Thanks for the great idea!!!

I made this recipe for friends at work. Several asked for the recipe! The muffins are moist and the cherry/almond combination is great! I couldn't find frozen cherries so I used canned. I'm sure the frozen would be a little firmer in the finished product.

These are awesome! The batter was thicker than I thought it would be but they came out perfectly.
