Makes 6 large muffins


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup bottled or canned red cherries, pitted and drained


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a 6-cup large muffin pan. Sift the flour and allspice into a large bowl. Stir in the almonds, sugar, egg, butter, buttermilk, chocolate and cherries. Mix lightly with a fork until just combined.

Spoon the mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of one of the muffins comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool further.

Serve warm or cool.
