cherry cornmeal muffins

I love corn muffins. Well, I really just love muffins in general. No need to discriminate. The passion many people have toward cupcakes is how I feel about muffins. Simply speaking, muffins are basically just naked cupcakes, with a lot more going on inside than on top of their heads.
We all need a bit of whimsy in our lives every now and then. I made these muffins with a surprise in the middle: a sweet juicy cherry. The recipe is from Joy of Baking, in which I substituted bing cherries for the recommended berries. A snap of the wrist and a final dusting of powdered sugar always does the trick...Enjoy!
