  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup fresh pitted and quartered sweet cherries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Mix flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

Whisk oil, milk, egg, and almond extract together in a small bowl. Pour into flour mixture; stir gently until incorporated. Fold cherries into the batter.

Spoon batter into the muffin cups, filling each 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar on top.

Bake muffins in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
