It's cherry season! And I got a bunch of cherries in my hand. Kids and me are cherry-addict so I always stocked them in my fridge. We like to eat them as it is or in baking goods.
Mindy post this recipe on her blog and I'd love to try. And this recipe turned out great. Love it! The texture of the muffin is so light and soft with a touch of sourness from the cherries.
Black Cherry Sour Cream Muffins
Source : Baking Bites via Mindy's Deli
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream (light or regular)
1/4 cup cherry juice (or milk, if juice is unavailable)
3/4 cup pitted black cherries (defrosted, if frozen), chopped
coarse sugar, for topping
Preheat oven to 375F and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar, egg and melted butter. Add in 1/2 of the flour and the sour cream and stir to combine. Stir in cherry juice (or milk) and remaining flour, just until no streaks of flour remain. Stir in cherries and divide into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle each generously with sugar.
Bake for 16-19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Makes 1 dozen.
