Jeweled Muffins

Peaches and cherries, cherries and peaches we couldn’t stop snarfing long enough to make them into anything.  I put a halt to it when I couldn’t take anymore root-a-toot-toots.  Honestly – I thought beans were the musical fruit.


This recipe is super moist and will take any type of fruit you care to put in.  I wouldn’t do the cherries again, because the flavor didn’t shine like the peaches did and they got so dark from sitting in the fridge over-night.  I also like my muffins to POOF like these and I think because my fruit chunks were too large these didn’t reach their full poofing potential.

    Hmm, I’ve never thought about combining peaches and cherries. Interesting contrast.
