    I visited Horizon Guest House twice and greatly enjoyed Clem’s breakfasts so when I saw this cherry and dark chocolate muffins recipe, I couldn’t resist the chance to bake a batch. They are DELICIOUS and I’m a rank amateur baker so anyone can bake these. I added a bonus touch…a scoop of vanilla ice cream and WOW! Thanks Clem. I really hope to return to HGH for the views, ambiance, Clem’s cooking, and to see Cleo and Ele.
