Peach Coffeecake Muffins
Peach Coffeecake Muffins are some of the best breakfast muffins you’ll ever dig into. A lovely peachy-cinnamon batter is topped with a streusel topping of flour, sugar, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and pecans. Sprinkled over the top, this streusel topping reminds you of eating a Peach Coffee Cake but in muffin form. They’re incredibly delicious.
Well, I hope to finish out all my peach recipes this week. Thankfully, you can still get peaches at the store to make these mouthwatering recipes. Peach Coffeecake Muffins are certainly gems. Whether you like muffins for breakfast, afternoon or evening snacks, or even as a dessert, these muffins offer something for everyone. The cinnamon permeates both the batter and the streusel topping bringing out such a heavenly taste you will be hard pressed trying to stop eating them when you should! Did I say these muffins are addictive? Yep. Utterly.
I’m really going to miss not having my small peach orchard in our back forty from here on out, but I will say they were a LOT of work. My husband, pruned, fertilized, sprayed, watered and did everything we could to bring these peach trees back to life after years of neglect from previous owners. We got a huge crop but, unfortunately, we were not able to use all of it before we moved. Even still I was making goodies daily and give them away to friends at church, our realtor, our new buyers, as well as anyone else who came by or helped us in the moving process. Yes, I was doling out peach goodies for about two or three weeks almost daily.
It is hard to believe we moved out of our house almost two months ago and I’m still posting recipes from that time period. Our schedule has been crazy and I just haven’t had too much extra time to sit down and write up all the posts. I am hoping to catch up this week. I will say the nice thing about our rental house is I don’t have to take pictures outside (in crazy windy, insanely hot, or otherwise poor weather conditions). There is enough light through one window that the lighting isn’t bad. Plus, the countertops here are white formica. Not my preferred granite, but it’s excellent for step-by-step pictures because of the white background. So all in all, our move has been pretty painless, and shopping is a lot closer (and better) than what we had before.
If you have a sweet tooth and love peaches, give Peach Coffeecake Muffins a try for your next weekend breakfast. Everyone will want seconds, and you’ll probably find yourself with more requests to make them again! Don’t forget, they’re addictive. 🙂
Peach Coffeecake Muffins are reminiscent of eating coffeecake but in muffin form!
These muffins are heavenly.
Peach Coffeecake Muffins are sure to be a hit with your family!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Combine butter, egg, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder, salt and milk in a mixing bowl.
Cream with an electric mixer.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add peaches. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Spoon batter into the tins to the top.
For crumb topping: combine flour, sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. Cut in butter with a pastry mixer until coarse crumbs form.
Add pecans and stir to combine.
Sprinkle streusel topping mixture evenly over top of each muffin.
Bake at 425 for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 15-19 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Every luscious bite is so mouthwatering!
