Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a muffin tin, or line with paper cases.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar together; add butter and beat well.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, alternating with milk. Fold in the cherries and pecans; stir just to combine.
Scoop muffin mixture into prepared muffin tins and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
If you prefer your muffins less sweet, feel free to try decreasing the amount of sugar to 300g or even 250g, depending on personal taste.
