“A favorite combo of flavors, these muffins resemble crumb cakes when made with streusel. The topping makes alot so you can use more for later or cut the topping in half. Update: I have made a few changes to make this even better!(Thanks Realtor!)”
6-8 muffins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. For the batter:
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cherries, chips (if using), cocoa, baking powder and salt. Mix in the softened butter; the mixture will be crumbly.
  4. Add eggs and water and mix until evenly moistened. Use a generous 1/4 cup of batter to fill the cups of the muffin pan.
  5. For the topping:
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients and the extract. Using a fork or your fingers, cut in the butter to form crumbs.
  7. Top the entire surface of each muffin with a generous amount of crumbs.
  8. Bake the muffin tops for 16-23 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center of one comes out clean.
  9. Cool the tops for 5 minutes in the pan, and then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
  10. Dust with additional glazing or confectioners' sugar if desired. Enjoy!
