Chocolate Chip And Black Cherry Muffins With Coconut Sugar

chocolate chip black cherry muffins

Who doesn’t love chocolate muffins? I definitely do and so do my children – well, of course they do! I like large, soft and moist muffins, the kind of muffins I used to eat for brekkie when I lived in Australia – still love them every now and then for breakfast. These muffins have a superbly moist and tender crumb, and the fruit gives a little tangy twist of flavour.

They are ready in 45 minutes and you don’t need to have any baking skills, they are that easy to make. The baking time is a little longer than with the usual muffins or cupcakes, because ot the size of the muffins and also because of the extra moisture from the black cherries. (You can use both fresh and frozen cherries.)

Best eaten the same day, but I had one for breakfast (which was the last one) the next morning and it was still lovely and soft.

I don’t think I’ve ever had cherry with chocolate before as I’ve never been the biggest fan of black forest but the coconut sugar sounds lovely x
