Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour bleached flour toughens baked goods
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened (preferred, I used salted butter because that’s all I had) (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups peaches peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans plus more pecans for the top of each muffin

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Mix sugar, baking soda, vanilla, sour cream, eggs and butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add flour, peaches and pecans.
  • Stir just until moistened.
  • Spoon muffin batter into greased or sprayed muffin tins until almost full.
  • Sprinkle more chopped pecans over top of each muffin in pans.
  • Press pecans slightly into batter.
  • Bake in a preheated 425° oven for 5 minutes.
  • Adjust temperature to 350°.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes

NOTE: The secret to having muffins that raise perfectly every time is to start the baking at a high temperature (425°), and then lower the temperature to 350° after 5 minutes. This allows the muffins to raise properly. If you bake muffins at a steady 350° for the whole length of baking time, they will usually be flat on top.
