DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • For the batter:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cherries, chips (if using), cocoa, baking powder and salt. Mix in the softened butter; the mixture will be crumbly.
  • Add eggs and water and mix until evenly moistened. Use a generous 1/4 cup of batter to fill the cups of the muffin pan.
  • For the topping:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients and the extract. Using a fork or your fingers, cut in the butter to form crumbs.
  • Top the entire surface of each muffin with a generous amount of crumbs.
  • Bake the muffin tops for 16-23 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center of one comes out clean.
  • Cool the tops for 5 minutes in the pan, and then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
  • Dust with additional glazing or confectioners' sugar if desired. Enjoy!
