Peaches and Cream Muffins

Delicious, and moist, peaches and cream muffins that are made with real fruit. A hint of cream gets blended into the batter. The muffins are topped off with sweet brown sugar, for a delicious crunch!

Peaches and Cream Muffins

Freshly chopped peaches, are pureed for a smooth fruit batter. Plus… the pureed fruit makes them kid friendly. Our 6 year old son, gobbled these down. He requested them for his future school lunches. I guess, I need to bake a new batch and stash them in the freezer! Between the in-laws, our son, and myself, we ate through the batch quick. So fast, that I had to make a fresh batch for pictures, a couple days later!

Here’s what the first batch looked like, from my Instagram account.

Here’s what I did: I peeled and chopped the peaches (You can use canned peaches. Make sure to drain them). I pureed the chopped peaches, until nice and smooth. Then in a mixing bowl, I added the pureed peaches, melted butter, sugar and heavy cream. I whisked them together. Added in the eggs, whisking well. Stir in the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour. I sprayed a 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. I spooned the batter into the 12 muffin tins. I sprinkled a little brown sugar over each muffin before baking. Baked in a 400 F degree oven for 10 minutes. Turned the heat down to 350 F degrees (don’t open the oven), and baked for 13 minutes. You can do the toothpick test, to check if the middle is fully baked.
