  1. Combine the cherries and buttermilk in a small bowl, and set aside to soak for 30 minutes.

  4. In a measuring cup, combine the egg substitute, applesauce and almond extract.
  5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and spoon the buttermilk and cherries into it.
  6. Then add the egg-substitute mixture. Mix until thoroughly blended, but do not overmix.
  7. Fill the prepared muffin cups two-thirds full with batter, and bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when touched lightly with a fingertip.
  8. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
