Happy Mother's Day!
Having someone over for a Mother's Day afternoon tea?
This little "pretty in pink" muffin made with almonds and maraschino cherries would fit the bill.
Today's recipe is from Muffins - a Cookbook (1982) by Joan Bidinosti and Marilyn Wearring, two Ontario mothers and great cooks. Good news! A quick search indicated that this book is still available (used) on Amazon.
