Cherry Almond Topped Breakfast Muffins - Taste and Create

I am in the middle of a mystery.  This muffin is a result of participating in Taste and Create.  When, I received my partner for this month, I was delighted.  I got Shelby from The Life and Love of Grumpy's Honeybunch.   I have admired Shelby's blogs and her recipes for ages and couldn't wait to get into her blog.  Of course, when I did, I wanted to make everything and we know, that wouldn't work.  After listing several recipes, I realized, I was planning to make muffins for my husband so why not save myself the work of making a decision and take the easy route.  I found this delicious almond breakfast muffin.  I added dried cherries to the batter and made it gluten-free.

I knew, I should make it right away so it did not become a last minute pressure, rather than a joyous bake.   I made them, tasted and enjoyed, and typed up the post, in this blog.  Photos in place, I walked away, happy to be so organized.

Now, are you wondering about my mystery?  

I can't find the recipe.  I am sure, I have seen it blogged.  The photos are saved and I don't transfer the photos to the computer, until I am ready to use them.  Somewhere, that recipe and post are wandering around.  For the moment, I can't find them, so I am writing this up again.  The problem is, I am not sure what I did to the recipe.  I know, I made it gluten free which means changing the flour and I added the dried cherries but if there are any other subtle changes, I have no idea what they are.  In all likelihood, I didn't change anything, wanted to come as close as possible to Shelby's muffin.  A million thanks, Shelby, for a wonderful, delicate sweet tasting muffin.

Cherry Almond Topped Breakfast Muffins  (I am leaving Shelby's recipe intact and adding the changes, I believe, I made.)

  6. Glad you enjoyed the muffins (and sorry it took me so long to get here!) Grumpy has been requesting I make some gluten free treats for him to take to work - I have't really tried to do that I realize you did these this way I will have to try it out myself! Thanks!
