Strawberry Cherry Muffins

strawberry cherry muffins

As I have mentioned, we have an overabundance of pie cherries here at my mom’s house.  Her hedges were/are covered in cherries.  I swear we keep picking and picking and they are still covered.  

We have made a couple cherry pies, juiced a ton of cherries for jelly, and frozen a lot of cherries for pies, and other baked goods later.  I asked on our Facebook page for ideas on what to make with the cherries and plan on making a bunch of those ideas as the weather gets cooler.  

But I really wanted to make these muffins even if it’s a bit warm to be baking!!  Mom had heard from a friend that cherries & strawberries mixed together make wonderful jam.  So we put some in the food processor and chopped it all up for jam and froze it, to deal with later.   But that combination sounded like in would be awesome as a muffin too.  So I just had to try it!! 

 And I’m so glad I did!!  These little Strawberry Cherry Muffins or Cherberry Muffins, as I like to call them are absolutely delicious!!  I ate two within the first fifteen minutes they were out of the oven.  Soooo good.  

Yield: 24 muffins

I didn't have access to fresh cherries so tried making these with thawed frozen cherries, they turned out rather well! I too ate two while they were still warm. Will definitely pass this recipe onto my parents to try with the cherries off their tree!!!
