Course Breakfast


  • 1 ½ c flour
  • ¾ c plus 2 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • c oil
  • c milkĀ 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c cherries, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 400F and line a muffin pan with cupcake liners so you have everything ready to go when the batter is mixed.
  • Stir together the flour, ¾ cups of the sugar, baking powder and salt until it is well mixed.
  • Stir in the oil, milk, and egg and mix well. If you have a few lumps it will be ok but you want to make sure the batter looks mostly uniform so the cherry muffins set up correctly.
  • Next, we will gently fold in the cherries and then scoop the batter into the cupcake liners we have ready. Fill the cupcakes liners about ⅔ of the way full.
  • Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of sugar on top of each muffin so that they come out with a sweet and kind of crunchy topping.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes until golden brown or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
