Dried Cherry Muffins
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
These are great! Literally 30 minutes from starting the prep until they came out of the oven, and with a small household, I always appreciate a recipe for 6, instead of 12 muffins.I used local dried cherries, which were plump and soft. If your dried fruit has turned hard, try drizzling a teaspoon of hot water over it before you make the batter.
I made the dried cranberry variation suggested by the editors and found that the muffin cups needed to be filled half-full, not three-quarters full, for a yield of 6. They rose well, were moist and looked pretty. But, I could taste a baking soda flavor, which I didn't care for.
