Okay, so I was really going to try to wait until this weekend to post this, but “Muffin Saturday” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Muffin Monday.” I bought more peaches at the farmer’s market over the weekend and this morning made these Spiced Peach Muffins. I was worried the Spiced part would be too much, but it turns out it was just right. I’m very excited to have these muffins available for breakfast this week!
Spiced Peach Muffins
from King Arthur Flour
makes 16 muffins
4 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups milk
4 peaches, diced (not peeled) or 3 cups small whole berries or other fruit, diced
What To Do
Combine flour, salt, baking powder, brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, vegetable oil and milk, then gently stir in fruit. Grease 16 muffin cups, and heap batter into cups; they’ll be very full. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until muffins test done.
I peeled my peaches – it just seemed weird not to.
I didn’t have any allspice so left it out.
I made half the recipe and ended up with 10 muffins.
These muffins were so easy to throw together and are so delicious! I sure hope you try them out during this season of peachy goodness. Have a great (peachy) week!
