  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Mix flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk oil, milk, egg, and almond extract together in a small bowl. Pour into flour mixture; stir gently until incorporated. Fold cherries into the batter.
  4. Spoon batter into the muffin cups, filling each 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar on top.
  5. Bake muffins in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you're not using paper liners, spray the muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

These were really good! Used dried cherries & a few toasted almonds - will definitely make again!
