Cherry Pie Muffins: Good Morning Yummy

Do you ever get the feeling that breakfast is becoming bland? Such a suspicion snuck up on me last week when I asked the kids whether they wanted eggs or pancakes for breakfast and realized I’d asked them that same question four times in a row. Blech. It’s no fun when breakfast is boring.  So we decided to spice things up a bit.  We pulled a can of Cherry Pie Filling from the back of the pantry and mixed it into these divine little muffins.  The filling made for truly perfect bites of pastry with the sweet-sour addition of while cherries right inside.  Quick, delicious and happy, these easy muffins are a simple way to add some snazz to your morning.

Cherry Pie Muffins

For the muffins:
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. milk
1 can cherry pie filling
*
For the streusel:
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, and brown sugar.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir together just until incorporated.  Spoon into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers. In a small bowl, mix together the streusel ingredients until  crumbly.  Sprinkle generously atop each muffin. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 17-19 minutes, until the top of each muffin springs back when touched lightly with your finger.  Cool slightly before serving.  Enjoy!

Makes 15 standard-sized muffins.
