Cherry Muffins with Streusel Topping

For me, a muffin is still something that’s relatively healthy. It’s not too sweet, is perhaps made with whole wheat flour, and is more likely to be loaded with fruit than candy. A muffin can also be savory instead of sweet. The texture is usually dryer and slightly denser than their cupcake cousins.

On the other side Cupcakes are, well, miniature cakes. They’re sweet by definition, coming in flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. A cupcake is tender and rich with eggs and butter. They’re a dessert item, not an everyday breakfast food. And cupcakes always have frosting.

Okay, so now we know the difference and today I want to share with you some damn good streusel topped cherry muffins. Not cherry cupcakes. No frosting allowed here. The crumb easily holds up the cherries. Dense, but moist. And the best thing is since it’s a muffin, we are allowed to eat it for breakfast. This little old muffin will never make you wait in a line. With little more than a few simple pantry ingredients and a whisk, hot fresh muffins can be had anytime your heart desires.

That being said, I’m not anti-cupcake, just strongly pro-muffin. I’ll enjoy the occasional cupcake but I’ll take the muffin any day.
