Ingredients
  • • Softened Butter, ⅓rd cup or 75 grams approx.
  • • Caster Sugar, ⅓rd cup or 65 grams approx.
  • • All Purpose Flour (maida), 1¼th cup or 150 grams
  • • Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
  • • Baking Soda, ½ teaspoon

Method
  1. Preheat oven for 10 minutes at 180 degrees.
  2. Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and keep aside to be used later.
  3. In another bowl, whisk butter and sugar until lighter in color and fluffy. The sugar should combine completely with the butter, this will take about 5-10 minutes. Finally mix in the vanilla essence.
  4. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients little by little and keep adding the buttermilk slowly until you form a wet batter. Mix only until you no longer see dry flour. And only use a spatula to mix, NO whisk.
  5. Add in the the pitted cherries and chocolate chips to the batter and mix until evenly dispersed.
  6. Fill the muffin liners until ¾th full and bake for about 15-20 mins at 180 degrees or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Let the muffins cool down for atleast 10 mins before taking them out.
