Freaky Friday Muffins with Cherimoya #FreakyFridayFruits

#ad I was given produce from Melissa's Produce to create a recipe with and to give my honest opinion about it. 
All comments about the fruit are my very own.

Happy Friday!  I am pre-empting my regular Friday Favorites to bring you this great muffin recipe made with cherimoya. Thank you to Melissa's Produce for sending these great fruits for us to try out! Another big thanks to our host Camilla Mann, from Culinary Adventures with Camilla. She is one of my food blogger gurus. Check out her recipes.

Cherimoya Muffins

I chose to work with the chirimoya fruit because I loved the way it looked.  Mark Twain described it as "the most delicious fruit on earth."  That's quite the recommendation!  It is grown in Central America.  The ripe fruit is creamy with a banana/papaya/strawberry flavor.  The seed is not edible.

I created this muffin recipe using the fruit. When taste testing with my family, they thought it was a banana muffin, but with a more creamy fruit. They very much liked these muffins!

Yield: 12 muffins
