Who doesn't love a super fresh cherry?
My bank account, that's who.
Luckily, a good friend of the family brought us over a big, giant container full of the sweet, delicious little fruits.
And what better way to put them to good use than in baked goods?
Listen, I know you probably think it's hot out, but when you come from a place where the average temperature is 105 with 100% humidity, 78 and sunny seems like the perfect "turn your oven on" weather.
Moral of the story? Suck it up, turn the oven on, and make these delicious muffins!!!

First, whisk butter, oil, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in egg, egg white, and vanilla.
Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until just combined. Finally, add in both containers of yogurt and cherries.
