These Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins were requested by my boyfriend, Ben. He asked if I could make something with cherries (he loves cherries!), so I quickly got to it, and made these delicious muffins for him. And me. 😉

As you can see here, these muffins are loaded with chocolate chips and chopped cherries. Just how we like them. Of course, you can use less if the amounts used here are too much for your tastes. Or you could even replace the chocolate chips or cherries with your favourite add-ins!

Fill the muffin cases until nearly to the top, and you’re ready to bake! These muffins take about 15 – 20 minutes on 200C/400F, then just let them cool before you devour them. Saying that, these muffins are SO good when they’re still warm. Try warming one up on day 2!

I love this muffin recipe. It calls for melted butter so no creaming method required. Simply whisk the dry ingredients together in one bowl, then whisk together the wet ingredients in another. Gently combine the two together, then fold in the chocolate chips and cherries. Quick and simple!
