Peach cobbler muffins

Fresh peaches baked into muffins? Sounds like a scrumptious breakfast.

  • Yield: 24 two-inch muffins
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 25 minutes

Two peaches were sitting in the fruit basket. Nobody was eating them. Two peaches are not enough for a cobbler, but to top some muffins, they were plenty, and plenty good. I wanted big muffins for my daughter to take to school, so I used a cupcake tin whose molds take 1/2 cup of batter.

Ingredients

    For the peaches

  • 2 large peaches, chopped into cubes (it's not necessary to peel them)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the muffins

  • 1 3/4 cup sifted flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3/4 cup milk

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C).

Grease your muffin pans (or cupcake pan).

Spooning cooked peaches into muffin pan filled with batterOnce you've cooked the peaches down, carefully spoon the mixture into the muffin batter. Warning: Too much peach mixture will spill over onto the muffin pan as the muffins begin to rise! (Photo: Anna Norris)
Mix the cubed peaches, sugar and cinnamon. Put them in a small saucepan and cook them over a low flame, until the sugar is dissolved and the peaches are starting to give out some juice. Put aside.

Sift together the dry ingredients, or mix them very thoroughly.

Take a separate bowl and in it break the eggs. Beat them.

Add the oil and milk to the eggs.

Pouring wet ingredients into sifted flourOnce the flour is sifted it should be a very soft, powdery consistency. Gently create a crater in the middle of the flour and pour the mixed wet ingredients in. (Photo: Anna Norris)
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid mix into it. Mix the batter up quickly; over-beating will result in a tough texture. Ignore any lumps, just draw in all the flour until you have a batter.

Fill your molds 2/3. Spoon cooked peaches over each filled mold.

Bake 20-25 minutes. Allow the muffins to sit in the pan for 5 minutes or so before taking them out: They will be more likely to come out in one piece if you do.
