Mrs. Frankenstein's Double Dutch Cherry Muffins from Disney and Tim Burton's FrankenWeenie.This recipe is featured in Mrs. Frankenstein’s cookbook, along with the Dutch Apple cake we’ll be making next week. I kept the recipe as true to the film’s version as possible with a few minor differences. Firstly, I expanded on the instructions. Secondly, I added 1/2 tsp. of salt to the batter to help enhance flavor and thirdly, I substituted whipped heavy cream for the double cream. Double cream, I found, is more so common in the United Kingdom and not so easily obtainable here in the United States.
