My daughter Olivia is only 14 but she has grown into quite a good little baker. Today is her last Pointe Ballet class for the season and she wanted to make some of her favourite Chocolate Chip Muffins to take along and share with the young ladies in her class.

This recipe is a variation of our Best Chocolate Chip Muffins. So simply delicious.

I suggested adding some chopped cherries to the mix and the result was wonderful. The sweet and slightly tart cherries played very well with the chocolate indeed.

Chunky Cherry Chocolate Chip Muffins - the best chocolate chip mufin recipe with chunks of sweet, fresh cherries baked right in. A sure hit at any brunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cup cherries, quartered
  • a few tsp of coarse sugar for the tops, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin tins very well and grease the top of the pans too, between the cups.
  2. Sift together the flour and baking powder and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together the eggs sugar and vanilla extract on high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.
  4. Mix together the melted butter and vegetable oil in a measuring cup with a spout. Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the mixer continues to whisk.
  5. Mix together the whipping cream, milk, and cider vinegar and add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.
  6. Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix. Don't worry about a few small lumps in the batter, they are fine.
  7. When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, gently fold in the chocolate chips and chopped cherries.
  8. Spoon batter evenly into the well greased muffin tins, filling them almost to the top. If you like you can sprinkle about a teaspoon of coarse sugar (like turbinado) over the top of each muffin before baking.
  9. Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for about 20 - 25 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  10. Let the muffins rest in the pans for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

Is there anything I can use instead of whipping cream? Yogurt? I often find it in you're muffin recipies guess I need to start having it on hand. I make a different muffin of yours every week lol 😉

The whipping cream adds to the moistness and soft texture but you could use milk or even yogurt.

Whipped this up this morning to take to the office. I used fresh raspberries as that is what I had in the fridge. Sorry they didn't last long enough to take a photo!
