Cherry Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup halved maraschino cherries
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a small bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, oil and extract. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. (Remember to use caution when mixing muffins as over-stirring can make tough muffins). Fold in cherries and chocolate chips.
Fill paper lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
Makes 2 dozen.
