3 1/3 c Unbleached Flour
1 tb Baking Powder PLUS
1 t Baking Powder
1 t Salt
1/4 c Sugar
1 lg Egg, Beaten
2/3 c Tart Cherries, Well Drained
2 ts Almond Extract
1 3/4 c Milk
1/3 c Vegetable Oil
1/3 c Nuts, Chopped (Optional)
Preheat oven to 400 and grease muffin tins.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, almond extract, and vegetable oil blending well. Add to the dry ingredients and mix only to blend, if using an elelctric mixer, use low speed, about 30 seconds. Batter will still be lumpy. Gently fold in the drained cherries and chopped nuts.
Spoon into well greased muffin tins filling each about 2/3 full, handling the batter as little as possible. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 25 minutes or until done.
Yield: 24 muffins
