  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 400 g cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 125 g butter, melted

  • ¾ cup icing sugar, sifted
  • Red and green glacé cherries, to decorate
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, line muffin tin with paper cases or grease well.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together into a large bowl. Add cherries and mix well.
  3. Lightly whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add melted butter and milk. Add to dry ingredients and mix together quickly. Do not over mix as this will cause the muffins to be tough.
