Favorite flavors of chocolate and cherry marry in muffins for a sweet treat.
cup vegetable oil
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup granulated sugar
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
teaspoons baking powder
cup chopped maraschino cherries, well drained and 2 tablespoons cherry juice reserved
cup powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottoms only of 6 jumbo muffin cups (3 1/2x1 3/4 inch) or 12 regular-size muffin cups (2 1/2x1 1/4 inch) with shortening, or line muffin cups with paper baking cups.
In medium bowl, beat milk, oil and egg with fork. Stir in remaining ingredients except cherries, juice and powdered sugar just until flour is moistened. Stir in cherries. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. (For 12 regular-size muffins, cups will be almost full.)
Bake jumbo muffins 23 to 25 minutes, regular-size muffins 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool jumbo muffins 10 minutes or regular-size muffins 5 minutes; remove from pan.
In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and reserved 2 tablespoons cherry juice with spoon; drizzle over warm muffins. Serve warm.
Serve with a brunch of eggs and fresh fruit.
