The Gaither Kitchen: Vanilla and Cherry Muffins

I am seriously starting to surprise myself with all of the time I am spending in the kitchen these days!
We were fortunate enough to buy a home that had mature landscaping which includes a gorgeous cherry tree!  This year the tree has been incredible!  We've had neighbors pick cherries who then treated us with the most AMAZING cherry pie.  Our family members have stopped by to pick as well.  Here are a few picture from my precious Daddy (aka Pappy) and Fiona picking this past Monday.


Are they not the cutest?!

Ok- Now for these Yummy Muffins!


3/4 cup finely chopped cherries
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, mix together your dry ingredients -  flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt 

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla extract

Next, pour wet ingredients into the dry – then add your butter and cherries.
Using a spatula to stir the ingredients together until just combined – try not to over mix as this will help to keep your muffins fluffy

Evenly scoop the muffin batter into the prepared pans, filling 3/4  of the way up
I used baking cups, but if you do no have any just make sure to grease the pan before pouring the mix in. 

Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until cooked through
Set aside to cool for about 5 minutes  

Time to enjoy your Vanilla & Cherry Muffins
