I could just blog and blog all day long. These are lovely little muffins, again using the basic recipe found here. These just have the fun addition of vanilla bean and cherries! Swap out blueberries for frozen cherries and add an entire vanilla bean plus 1 tsp extract to bring out that very wonderful vanilla flavor in the cherries themselves.
These muffins are best fresh out of the oven with a pat of butter on them. I keep making tiny muffins as they are just the right size for tiny hands and just the right amount of sweetness to put in a lunch. You could easily fill your muffin cups to 3/4 full and bake these as larger muffins... watch your time take out when they are turning golden. Boy there is a science to this whole baking thing! Sometimes they are perfect, sometimes too dark...we modify one thing and we have to rebalance the entire recipe. Throw these in the lunch or bake a treat for someone you love! ♥♥♥
