Peach Muffins

This was another recipe request in the quest to find ways to use fresh peaches. They were for a woman who just had a baby, so how could I resist!?

They were also supposed to be “not too sweet.” Remember, they are muffins, not cupcakes!!

These were fast and easy to make, and both of my kids gobbled one down fresh from the oven (rare). This is great if you are looking for a weekday breakfast for your kids (or yourself!) that also doubles as a great afternoon snack.

They are very tender, packed with fresh peaches and they have a lovely crackled cinnamon sugar top that is reminiscent of a snickerdoodle. Yum!

½ tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar

In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the peach wedges to the mixing bowl, and mix the peaches in by hand, breaking them up as you combine everything.

Spoon the batter into the paper liners, filling each cup to the top.

Sprinkle the top generously with cinnamon sugar.

Bake the muffins for 23 minutes (that’s how long mine took), or until just golden and crackled on the top, and a toothpick inserted into the middle came out clean.

    Heather, I have been making so many of your recipes for my company the past two weeks. I just took the Peach Muffins out of the oven. They smell wonderful. I have so many blueberries from my garden that I added them to the muffins with the peaches. Thanks for all your good recipes.
