   Here is a scratch muffin recipe that is as good as
   homemade blueberry muffins.
   
   Yield: 24 muffins
   
   Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a
   large mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs,
   milk, almond extract, and vegetable oil blending well.
   Add to the dry ingredients and mix only to blend, if
   using an elelctric mixer, use low speed, about 30
   seconds. Batter will still be lumpy.  Gently fold in
   the drained cherries and chopped nuts. Spoon into well
   greased muffin tins filling each about 2/3 full,
   handling the batter as little as possible. Bake at 400
   degrees F. for 25 minutes or until done.
