Cherry Muffins

By Sunday, August 26, 2012

My MIL always have things to give us whenever we visited. This time round, we got some dried cherries, initially not part of her intended gifts.

It started with her sharing on her latest buys from the organic shop she always frequent. Then we saw the dried cherries. My husband took a look at the ingredients, and immediately told her it's a "no-no". She is diabetics, but I tried to speak up for her, "It's ok to eat something sweet once in a while (and in moderation)". He insisted the cherries can't remain in my MIL's house... and you know where it ended up next. *Wink*

I decided to make muffins.  Muffins are easy. Measure out everything, mix them together and it's ready to be popped into the oven. Here's mine - rustic looking with sparks of reds peaking out =)

Recipe - makes approx 12 muffins
modified from here & here

A: 250g flour
     3 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp salt
     170g sugar

B: 120ml vegetable oil
     180ml buttermilk (made by adding 3/4 tbsp of vinegar to milk)
     2 eggs (beaten)

1 cup dried cherries (chopped into smaller pieces)  - I used 106g

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients in A together.
In another bowl, mix all ingredients in B together.
Pour B into A. With quick gentle strokes, mix everything together.
Add in the dried cherries. Mix well.
Spoon into muffin tins. Bake at 200C for 18-20 mins.
