These cherry muffins are the easy bake and sweet eat you’ve been looking for.
Our easy 5-step cherry muffins recipe gives you 12 gorgeous bakes in 40 minutes. And the good news? They even count towards one of your 5-a-day, making them a healthy treat the whole family can enjoy. We love how the cherry juice just slightly seeps into the light and fluffy sponge. Whilst the almond essence adds a nice nutty undertone. Eat as they are when cooled or serve slightly warm from the oven with a dollop of whipped crème fraîche.
If you can't get fresh cherries or they're a little expensive then try blueberries or raspberries instead.
