  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place cherries in a bowl and cover with hot water to soak for 10 minutes.

  4. To make batter place Authentic Foods Steve’s GF Cake Flour Blend, sugars, salt, Authentic Foods Vanilla Powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and baking soda in mixer bowl. Whisk to combine.

  8. Prep a muffin tin with liners and scoop batter into liners. Top off each muffin with streusel topping, then place in oven to bake.
  9. Bake for about 18-20 minutes until muffins spring back when touched.
