I do bake some mighty fine muffins, if I do say so myself! My favourite ones to bake are these cherry and white chocolate muffins. They are my signature muffins. If I'm stuck for a last minute gift idea, or need to take a plate of food to a get together, these muffins never fail to disappoint.
As soon as I get them out of the oven, I'm stuffing my face with two or three- they are by far the best muffins I have ever tasted. I love that they are so simple and fast to make, and yet taste sensational.
- 425g can stoneless black cherries, drained
- 75g unsalted butter, chopped
