I made these for a sweet friend and delivered them on her special day. Her husband was working out of town and I wanted her to know she was thought of.


cherry rosemary muffins

4 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 oranges

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 cups fresh cherries, lightly chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary

Heat oven to 375F. Lightly grease 2 (12-cup) muffin tins. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Grate 2 tablespoons of zest from the oranges, and set zest aside. Squeeze the oranges to get 1/2 cup juice. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, orange juice, milk and butter. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in orange zest, cherries and rosemary. Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
