Cheery Cherry Muffins by My Baking Heart

It’s summertime and cherries are everywhere! They’re flooding supermarkets, restaurant menus, and my Instagram feed… which led me to bake up these Cheery Cherry Muffins.

I had the chance to try out my nifty, new Cherry Pitter, too! Complements of OXO, this cherry pitter (also suitable for olives!) features a removable splatter shield that directs juices downward and prevents them from staining your hands and clothes. And even better, when the pitter is not in use, the splatter shield fits inside the front chamber and locks for convenient storage. Talk about handy!

Back to the muffins at hand, though. This is a simple, but beautiful recipe that is easily adaptable from season to season. Cherries today, apples in the Fall!
