Cherry and Almond Muffins

I found some British cherries at the supermarket yesterday (quite an achievement - see here!) and with a half opened container of Greek yogurt and a half opened packet of ground almonds, I set about making these Cherry and Almond Muffins.

200g Plain Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
100g Ground Almonds
150g Golden Caster Sugar
1 egg, beaten
125g Melted Butter
175ml Greek Yogurt
200g Cherries, pitted and halved
1 over ripe Banana.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c
Step 2: Line 12 hole muffing tin
Step 3: Sieve together dry ingredients
Step 4: Mix together sugar, butter, egg and yogurt and tip into dry ingredients
Step 5 Add cherries and mashed banana and stir briefly - do not over mix
Step 6: Place in oven for approx 25 minutes.

You can never have too many muffins :)
Cherry and almond are a perfect flavour combo. I love how you used fresh cherries. They look fab.

I like muffins or any baked good that does not involve a gob of over sweet frosting, these sound delish!

How sad that British cherries are in such decline, I'm glad you're doing your bit to help. Your muffins sound fab, minus the banana of course. :-)
