Tips for the Best Cherry Muffins

Use Fresh or Frozen Cherries: When they’re in season, fresh cherries are great, but frozen cherries are also great. If you use frozen cherries, don’t let them thaw before adding them to the batter to keep them from being too wet.

Adding Greek Yogurt for Moisture: Greek yogurt not only makes the muffins moister, but it also gives them a slight tang that goes well with the cherries.

Don’t Overmix: If you mix the batter too much, the muffins will be dense. Add the ingredients and mix just until they are mixed.

Room Temperature Ingredients: Using eggs and yogurt that are at room temperature makes the batter smoother and has a better texture.

Adding Almond Extract: If you want to add a little extra flavor, you could try adding a teaspoon of almond extract. Almonds and cherries go well together.

Notes

Storage: The muffins can be kept at room temperature for up to three days in a container that doesn’t let air in. You can keep them in the fridge for up to a week or freeze them for up to three months. To warm them up again, just put them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes or in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.

Variations:  Adding chocolate chips, nuts, or a streusel topping is an easy way to change this recipe. You could use whole wheat flour or cut down on the sugar to make it healthier.
