Recipe for Dried Cherry Muffins. Tangy dried cherries give these terrific muffins great flavor and an extra nutritional boost.


  • 1 cup dried cherries, pitted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. Grease 18 muffin cups or line them with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and mix thoroughly.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and spoon the cherries and buttermilk into it. Then add the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until thoroughly blended - but do not over mix.
  5. Fill the cups two thirds full with the batter, and bake until a cake tester comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.
