I've Got a New Recipe for Peach Pie Muffins

I couldn't decide if I felt like having peach pie or peach muffins. So I created peach pie muffins. You should too.

peach pie muffin

Each pecan crumb-topped muffin gives way to a moist, cakey inside that is studded with bits of fresh, juicy, sweet peaches. Oh, and did I mention there's no crust to roll out? Yeah, baby.

Peach Pie Muffins
Makes 12 regular size muffins.
Print recipe only here.

Pecan Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
4 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
3 tablespoons honey
1 cup light brown sugar
5 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons fresh minced ginger
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup fresh diced peaches with skins

1. Place rack in center of oven, and preheat to 375 degrees F. Spray a 12 mold regular size muffin pan with cooking spray.

2. To make the crumb topping, in a small bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and pecans, and toss until well combined. Pour melted butter evenly over mixture, and using your fingers, quickly toss and pinch the mixture until little pebbly pieces form. Refrigerate while making the muffins.

3. Combine flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl, and stir well.

4. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, honey, sugar, butter, eggs, ginger, and vanilla, and whisk well. Add to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in peaches.

5. Spoon the batter evenly into the into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle pecan crumb topping evenly over the muffin tops. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a cake tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a rack to cool for 5 minutes before removing each muffin and placing on a wire rack to cool.

Great creation. I love summer peaches. Can't wait to try these muffins!

Janelle said...

Okay, here's my problem. The last time I tried to make something that called for fresh peaches, I only ended up getting about half as much flesh off the fruit as I needed because It was too stuck to the seed in the center, and the juice just completely ran down to my elbows.

How do you get good amounts of flesh out of the fresh fruit?

That muffin looks gorgeous, Susan. I love the crunch of crumb or streusel topping.
Wish that wasn't just a picture but the real thing. Would have made my day! :)

Oh, thank you for reminding me that I need to do something with all the peaches in my fridge. Love that I don't have to peel them here. :D

What an awesome muffin recipe. I've been looking for something to make with peaches. This is the one.

This is a really lovely muffin! I love that you left the skins on the peaches too. (I never peel peaches or tomatoes.) Sounds delicious.

Oh yeah! Sounds awesome.

Susan from Food Blogga said...

maria-I adore them too!

janelle-Perhaps it was too ripe? When cutting it, try slicing a square around the stone, so that the fruit comes off in four wedges. Then you don't have to deal with the stone at all.

aparna-I wish you could come over and have one with me. :)

danielle-Now, why didn't I think of that?

anh-Thank you!

meeta-Already another b-day! My, how time flies!

rosa-Thanks so much!

lynda-Have a great time!

codfish-Me too. Plus I think it lends a little extra flavor.

ali-I couldn't agree with you more!

foodhunter-I hope you like it as much as I do!

lisa-They're so hard to peel, unless you parboil them first, which is such a pain.

lori-Thank you, kindly!

sliceofsueshe-Taste pretty awesome too, if I must say so. :)

What a great idea! I just came home from picking peaches and blueberries at a friend's house, and I think I have everything else in the pantry for these awesome muffins.
