Another muffin recipe? 

Oh, yes! I'm still on my muffin kick. They are one of my favorite weekday morning breakfasts! 

I recently found some cherry chips in the Easter section at my local grocery store, and with cherry being one of my favorite flavors, I just knew I had to buy them.

Cherry chips are available all year round. If you can't find them at your local grocery store, they are available to order on Amazon here!

These muffins are absolutely wonderful! They are the perfect texture, and the mini cherry chips that we used, make every bite tasty.

We love them for a quick weekday breakfast or even weekend brunch. They are also great for snack or even pack them in a lunch box

If cherry chips aren't your thing, you can substitute any flavor chips. We absolutely love peanut butter or butterscotch!

What are the ingredients in this recipe?


Muffin batter in a bowl.


  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Baking powder: It's a dry leavening agent, with a shelf life about 9-12 months. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods by causing bubbles in a wet mixture. Baking powder is usually made with a combination of baking soda, cream of tartar and cornstarch. Once opened baking powder should be used within six months because it loses its potency and power.
  • sugar
  • salt
  • eggs
  • Milk: Cow’s milk is made of lactose, water, fat, proteins and minerals and is a great source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium. The percentage of those ingredients can vary depending on the species, breed and the food they eat.
  • canola oil
  • Vanilla extract: this extract is made from vanilla bean pods soaked in water and alcohol. Try using pure vanilla extract instead of imitation. This is the most common extract used in American desserts and I put it in pretty much anything sweet, Use store bought or make your own vanilla!
  • mini cherry chips

Recipe tips:


  • These muffins can be frozen. Wrap cooled muffins in freezer wrap, or freezer bags. Store up to 3 months.
  • It is not recommended to make the batter in advance because the baking powder becomes activated when the liquids are added. They will not rise as they should if made in advance.

  1. Wow, what a wonderful find!! If I'm not mistaken, that's the Tunnel of Fudge Cake on the cover. I remember very well the year it won...Mom immediately bought the ingredients (and the Bundt Pan!) so she could make it. We loved it, and made it many times. She and I always looked forward to the Bakeoff every year, to see what the contestants came up with. Thanks for a great post! Oh and where do you find cherry chips?
