homemade cherry muffins recipe
Making food in a muffin tin is fun to me. Its snack bites of food. You can easily freeze and pull out what you need. This cherry muffin recipe takes delicious sweet or tart cherries and makes them into warm delicious cherry muffins.
If you take fresh cherries, pit and then freeze them, you can have fresh(ish) cherries all year round for delicious recipes.
Consider making a batch of these cherry muffins and freezing them to eat when you want. You could also make mini muffins (chop the cherries a little smaller) and have bite size snacks.
