Start your day with these scrumptious fresh peach muffins. You'll love their tender peach-filled insides and crumb topped outside! Truly irresistible!
Peach season is nearly here! I am generally not much of a fruit person, but I do love fresh peaches! And as most of you already know, I love muffins, too! Therefore it is necessary to have fresh peach muffins.
These are truly scrumptious! The muffin part is filled with fresh peaches and is soft, tender, and incredibly flavored. The tops have a brown sugar crumb topping which I could almost eat by itself. These are definitely a must-try!
How to make peach muffins:
- Preheat your oven and prepare your muffin tins.
- How to easily remove peach skins: If you prefer to have the peach skin removed from your peaches like I do, bring a pot of water to a boil. Put the peaches (you'll need about 3) into the boiling water and boil for 45 seconds. Remove the peaches from the boiling water and submerge them in ice water. After a minute or two, remove the peaches from the ice water, and the skins should easily peel off. Slice and dice the peaches. You'll need 2 cups of them.
- Then in a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
- Beat in the pure vanilla and eggs.
- Beat in the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Whisk the sour cream and milk together in a measuring cup to be added alternately to the creamed sugar and butter mixture with the flour.
- Add ⅓ of the flour, then ½ the sour cream/milk, another ⅓ of flour, and the last ½ of sour cream milk.
- Fold in the peaches with the last of the flour.
- Divide among 24 muffin cups.
- In a food processor or in a bowl with a fork, combine the ingredients for the crumb topping and sprinkle it on top of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean.
Can I substitute canned peaches for fresh ones?
Yes, you can. You will want to make sure the canned peaches are very well drained and patted dry with a paper towel. Canned peaches have a lot more moisture in them, so you'll want to get rid of as much excess moisture as possible to get as close to the same result with this recipe as you would with fresh peaches.
Do these freeze well?
Yes, they do! Just make sure they are completely cool before wrapping them tightly with saran wrap or putting them in an airtight container and freezing them. Thaw at room temperature.
