Summer Fresh Recipe Series: Cherry Almond Muffins

Hot from the oven, tender muffins bursting with tart cherries and sweet earthy almonds is a flavor combination that will have you going back for seconds!

Time for some more baked goods!  As the 14th installment of my Summer Fresh Recipe Series of easy summer meals using the abundance of produce available we are going to highlight Cherries today!  I love cherries, and buy them every week throughout cherry season (which is so dang short!).  Sometimes it's hard to cook with them because we eat them like candy.  I serve them sitting in a bowl of ice during the summer months.  When I do get a chance to hide some away for cooking I'm bursting with joy, and today's recipe is bursting with cherries!


One bite and you will experience pure summer bliss.  There's something about cherries that scream summer whether it is a cherry pie, cherry ice cream, or these cherry muffins.  So get them while they are still around and make these muffins pronto.

Cherry Almond Muffins

serves: 6 muffins

1 egg
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cherries, pitted and rough chopped
1/3 cup almonds, rough chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl add the egg, milk, canola oil, and almond extract and whisk until light. Add in all the dry ingredients with the exception of the cherries and almonds. Mix batter just until incorporated.  Do not over mix. Batter should be thick.  Fold in the cherries and almonds lightly until mixed throughout.

Using a large ice cream scoop, divide batter among the wells of a muffin pan sprayed with cooking spray. Top with extra sliced almonds.

Bake for 16-18 minutes until tops are light brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
