Products Used In This Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 6 hole x Texas (¾ cup capacity) muffin pan with oil.
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and coconut. Stir through the frozen cherries. Make a well in the centre.
  3. In another bowl, whisk sour cream, eggs and oil until smooth. Add mixture to dry ingredients and using a large metal spoon, gently stir until just combined. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Ease muffins from the pan (you may need to run a blunt knife around the edges) onto a cooling rack. Dust with icing sugar and serve.

    Tip:

    • Healthier option: Remember muffins are essentially a cake, so if you are watching your weight enjoy them only occasionally. To make them lower in energy – replace the sugar with a granulated sugar substitute, use extra light sour cream and make 12 smaller muffins (please note smaller muffins will require less cooking time).
