  • Print

Peach Muffins

3 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 large eggs, at room temperature

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup full-fat sour cream

2 large ripe peaches

4 Tablespoons butter, softened

Crumb Topping

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour (not packed)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into tiny pieces

Almond Glaze*

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp almond emulsion

cream, milk or half and half, just enough to make the glaze the desired thickness

*substitute vanilla extract or lemon juice for a vanilla or lemon glaze


Make the crumb topping first, combining the ingredients with a fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles peas.  Refrigerate topping while preparing muffins.

In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour with baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Peel peaches and cut into small pieces.  Place in a bowl and toss with 2 Tablespoons flour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line or spray mini muffin pans well with baking or cooking spray.  Silicone muffin pans are recommended.

In another bowl or in your stand mixer, cream butter with white and brown sugar and beat until well combined.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat well to combine.  Next add 1/3 flour mixture, then 1/2 sour cream.  Repeat, beating until just combined, ending with last 1/3 flour mixture, being careful not to overmix.

Fold peaches into batter.  Scoop batter into prepared pans.  Top with crumb topping.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, testing for doneness with a toothpick near end of baking time. Spread hot muffin tops with butter if desired.  Cool in pans on a rack.

Mix powdered sugar with almond emulsion {or vanilla extract or lemon juice} and just enough cream to form a thick glaze.

Turn muffins out onto a plate and drizzle with glaze.

Makes 24-30 mini muffins or 12 regular muffins.



*If you don’t have a mini scoop, please treat yourself, they are sooo handy!!

Silicone muffin pans are wonderful, the muffins or cupcakes slide right out after baking

    Good morning. Jenna! This post today came right on time. I am going into Ohio today to look for peaches! Up near Lake Erie there are lots of peach farms… I am hoping they are ready for me to find. If not… I’ll head to a winery instead. 😊


  2. Good morning Jenna. I would love to have a half dozen of your peach mini muffins to enjoy with my coffee this morning. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and I hope to get some Chilton County peaches this week. Happy Tuesday!


  3. You are so good to take step out pix. I always forget till I’m too greasy or floured up to do it! Half the time I forget to take the finished thing too, till it is half eaten! These look great. Our good peach season comes in August. You can bet I’ll be coming back to this one!
