1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
2 large eggs
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
1 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. 1/2-inch diced peaches
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then grease a muffin pan. You can also line it with muffin liners. Set aside.
- Whisk together flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside.
- Whisk together eggs and sugar until well combined in a medium bowl. Add melted butter, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. Add this mixture into the flour mixture. Combine but do not overmix. Add the peaches.
- Divide the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups and then bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean.
- Remove the muffins from the oven and let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- You can use either fresh or canned peaches for this recipe. If you are using fresh peaches, you need to peel them. If you opt for canned peaches, make sure to drain them well.
These peach muffins are best the same day they are made. But in case you are making a huge batch and you are unable to consume them all in one day, you can store them in an airtight container. You can keep them at room temperature or in the fridge and they should last for up to 3 days.
One thing that you have to remember when making peach muffins is to never overmix the batter. When you mix the dry ingredients with the wet ones, combine them just right.
