Nice and tangy with a great texture.



2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup vanilla sugar (you can also use regular granulated sugar) (I used vanilla sugar)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used unsalted)
1/2 cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup coconut
2 teaspoons lime zest, finely grated (I used almost 1 Tbsp)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon coarse sugar, for sprinkling (optional) (I omitted this)


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk and next 6 ingredients (buttermilk through egg) in a bowl; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moist. (I folded in the dried cherries). Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle the tops evenly with the coarse sugar.

Bake at 400 F for 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove muffins from pan; cool on a wire rack.

Makes 1 dozen
