I love cherry season and I love Rainer cherries! I bought a big bag of Rainer and knew I would make a recipe my friend Sherry (gratefulservant) shared! What I didn't use in the muffins, I will eat all by themselves! Yummy! The muffins were so moist and every bite of cherry was so juicy! I bet you could put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on them and it would be delicious! I was thinking that as I was eating one! The muffins were so good as is but if you wanted to add a little bit more of brown sugar that would be awesome! ALERT: This is the 1st homemade muffin that I've made! No Box! YAY Me :) It was very easy and I used my toaster oven to bake in so my house didn't heat up!
