How to make it

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour and sugar for streusel topping. Cut in COLD butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, cloves, and baking soda for muffins; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk (beginning and ending with flour), mixing just until combined. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in cherries by hand. Fill paper-lined standard muffin cups (2-1/2 inches in diameter) 3/4 full. Sprinkle streusel over tops. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool muffins 10 mins. in pan. Remove muffins to wire rack and cool completely.
  • Note: The original recipe given to me by my aunt says this makes 12 muffins, but I always get anywhere from 12 to 16!
