1 cup pitted cherries, coarsley chopped
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 tsp almond extract (essence)
Ok, found some use for these muffins and they actually taste really good. Unfortunately most sank to the middle or the bottom of the cake.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter your muffin tins
In a bowl pour the boiling water over the cherries. Let stand for 5 minutes.
In another bowl stir and toss together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set asside.
To the cherries and water add the sugar, butter, eggs, lemon zest and almond extract. Add the combined dry ingredients and stir until blended.
Spoon in yhour muffin tins and bake for about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
