  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. Generously butter 12 standard-sized muffin cups. In a bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the sage, cinnamon and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until blended, then whisk in the milk and melted butter. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and combine using only about 8 strokes. Add the orange zest, cherries and walnuts. Stir together for another 8 strokes, but do not overmix. Some lumps are desirable, and overmixing will toughen the muffins. Immediately spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Serve warm.
