Almond Cherry Muffins

The flavour of almond and cherry works perfectly and I love the flavours of a Bakewell tart too. Served with a heap load of custard. And the flavour of these almond cherry muffins is exactly the same. So beautiful and harmonious. They are perfect for a grab and go breakfast idea.
