Cherry Muffins

We went camping this past weekend. We cooked supper over the camp fire and swam in a lake. We even took the kids kayaking. Most of us slept in a tent with sleeping bags. My husband gave up in the middle night and slept in the truck. He said it was more comfortable. Don't worry about the children since my sister and I were the children's pillow. We both woke up a little sore. To make breakfast easy, I made cherry muffins. They were easy to transport and the kids liked them. Since cherries are in season, I thought this would perfect for our trip.
Cherry Muffins
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar plus additional for the top
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, gently toss the cherries with 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add the milk and butter to the flour mixture. Stir until just incorporated.
  6. Add the two eggs and mix until just incorporated.
  7. Gently fold in the cherries.
  8. Evenly fill the 12 muffin tins about 3/4 full.
  9. Sprinkle a little sugar over the tops of the batter. 
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Remove from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.

One year ago...........................I made Blueberry Pie Bars.
Did you already know.............
-The first known kayaks were built over 2,000 years ago by North American Indians and Eskimos.
-If kayaking in navigating waters, the U.S. Coast Guard requires life preservers and noise making devices like a whistle.
-There are tandem kayaks. (It doesn't guarantee both kayakers will paddle.)
