- 1 1/2 cups fresh pitted cherries chopped and divided
- 2 cups all purpose flour add 1 tbsp to it
- 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt sea or kosher
- 1 tsp cinnamon freshly ground is best
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tbsp salted butter melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract natural
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream full fat
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips add 2 tbsp to it
- 12 whole fresh cherries stemmed
- 1 tbsp coarse sugar
Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 12 count muffin pan with liners and spray with a coating spray like Pam. Set aside.
Rinse and remove the pits from the cherries and set aside in a bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Whisk the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, butter, vanilla and sour cream.
Form a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the well. Stir 10-12 times to combine. Do not over stir. You want the batter to be lumpy! Over-stirring will create large air pockets in your muffins.
Gently fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup cherries.
Transfer the batter to the muffin cups, filling 3/4 of the way to the top of each liner. Sprinkle remaining cherry pieces and chocolate chips on top. Finish with placing a whole stemmed cherry on top of the batter. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the muffin tops are golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before allowing to cool on a wire rack.
