Cherry Surpise Muffins


Charlotte Carlile Recipe

This recipe came from the Atlanta Cooks for Company cookbook published in 1968. I still treasure this cookbook. You can still get this wonderful old book on Ebay. I make these little muffins every Christmas. The butter and beaten egg whites make them almost crispy and the cherry in the middle is a taste treat.

Sift flour and baking powder together and add, blending well. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites (by hand).
