Recipe: Cherry Muffins

Cherry muffins recipe

I had some cherries in syrup from my mom and I wanted to bake a cherry cake. But then I thought – muffins are better, as they are already portioned; so you don’t overeat (which is totally wrong anyway, but I tried). With this in mind, I got cute pink muffin molds from IKEA – they also had blue ones on display, but they were nowhere to be found (*sigh*). The recipe below should be fine for 9 muffins.


  • 180g of flour
  • 80 g sugar
  • 80g butter
  • a handful of cherries
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 ml milk
  • pinch of salt


    1. Preheat the oven at 180C.
    2. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt.
    3. Gently warm the milk (microwave or on the stove) and melt the butter (microwave or oven).
    4. In another bowl, beat the eggs together with the sugar until it gets white (or becomes a light yellow), then add the melted butter.
    5. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour bowl and mix slowly. Continue mixing while also adding the warm milk.
    6. Add the cherries and incorporate them into the mix.
    7. Add the mix into the muffin molds – be careful not to fill them completely.
    8. Put them in the oven and let them cook for around 20-25 minutes, until they get golden brown. Check up on them from time to time.
    9. Enjoy! 🙂


  • If you have silicone muffin molds, you don’t need to grease them with butter.
  • Certain ingredients can be replaced, as I already mentioned in a previous recipe blog post.
