Peach Muffins with Cinnamon Topping Recipe


Part of the summer season I absolutely love is when fresh peaches are available.. I just love the smell of them and will eat them any way I can have them. Here is a recipe we enjoy for a breakfast brunch.

2 cups finely chopped peaches place in a bowl with 1/2 cup sugar over the top
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Mix butter, sugar and beat till light. Add eggs, milk flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl, mix until blended.  Fold in peaches.
Place in cupcake lined tins. Top with mixture below and bake on 400 degree hot oven until browned around 20 minutes.

Mix together topping:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter
Optional: 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, pecans or macadamia nuts

I'm so 'lost in space' since last weekend, didn't know you opened up your commenting section, so glad that you did and hope you straightened out the problem with your photos being stolen. I found some of my photos on someone's blog but they linked it back to me, even if they didn't let me know, or ask permission. What they did to you was really wrong, and unprofessional:(

Peaches in muffins...sounds and looks so over the top yummy, and how could you go wrong with the cinnamon topping. I would gobble up a few in on 'sitting!'

Claudia, you have just added to my list of recipes to make using fresh peaches. This one is a winner for sure. PS: You must be SO proud of Curt and his wonderful new blog. Love both of your blogs! I'd comment more, but I've been spending most of my time in physical therapy. xoxo Roz
