Nice muffins, with a delicate cakelike texture and nice buckwheat flavor. I didn't have any cherries, so I used some dried blueberries and cranberries instead which worked well. These are amazingly moist considering that they are quite low in fat. Though I love buckwheat and baked goods made with buckwheat, the flavor seemed to be a little odd... not bad, just a little different. Overall, we enjoyed them. Thanks!
