What could be better than a freshly baked cherry and chocolate chip muffin? Wonderfully moist and fluffy, these muffins are a winner. Cherries and chocolate are a brilliant combination. When cherries are in season, this muffin recipe is an all time favourite. If you don’t happen to have fresh cherries, you can substitute them for frozen ones. Cherries contain many health benefits, some of which are powerful antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber
