3 1/3 cups Flour, All-purpose
1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
2/3 cup Tart cherries, well drained
2 tsp. Almond flavor
1 3/4 cups Milk
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1/3 cup Chopped nuts (optional)

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in mixer bowl. Combine eggs, milk, oil, and almond flavor.
Add to dry ingredients and mix only to blend (low speed) about 30 seconds. Batter will still be lumpy.
Gently fold in drained cherries and chopped nuts. Put batter into well greased muffin tins about 2/3 full. Handle batter as little as possible.

Bake at 400 F degrees for 25 minutes.
