  • Frozen cherry without cores – 300 g;
  • Flour – 1.5 glass;
  • Baking powder – 1 tea spoon;
  • Cacao – 2 tbsp;
  • Cinnamon – 1 tea spoon; 
  • Oil – ½ glass;
  • Liquid honey – 2 tbsp;
  • Sugar – ½ glass; 
  • Vanilla extract (sugar) – 1 tea spoon;
  • Salt – pinch;
  • Sugar powder for serving – 2 tbsp. 

Step 1

Unfreeze cherry. Collect carefully the cherry juice in a glass. Make the glass full with boiling water. This is liquid needed for our dough.

Step 2

Sieve the flour with baking powder in a bowl.

Step 3

Add cinnamon and cacao in it.

Step 4

Mix oil, honey, cherry water, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in the other bowl. Stir up.

Step 5

Add dry ingredients into the liquid ones and stir up only with a few movements. We don’t need flat dough to make muffins lift up while baking.

Step 6

Add cherry into the dough and stir up fast. It’s better to whip with a spoon. I’m skilful as I made a picture of wire whisk but replaced it to spoon later.

Step 7

Cover muffin pans with baking paper or grease them with oil. Arrange the dough into pans.

Step 8

Put into the oven pre-heated until 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Pierce with a toothpick to check if muffins are ready. Take muffins out of the oven, let them cool down and take them out of pans.

Step 9

Top with sugar powder and surprise all. Muffins are so tender with cherries blowing out inside… Аааааааа...

Bon appetite!
