Peach Cobbler Muffins

Peach cobbler in muffin form. Need I say more?

Need a little mid-week pick-me-up? Or perhaps a fun, special treat for Saturday morning brunch? These Peach Cobbler Muffins are just what you’re looking for!

They have all of the sweet, summery taste of fresh peaches, as well as that signature streusel topping cobblers are known and loved for. The best part is that this classic dessert is all wrapped up in a delicious muffin, therefore making it portable. What’s better than taking peach cobbler with you wherever you go?

Now, let’s talk about the deliciousness that is Peach Cobbler Muffins. We’ve got peaches, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, and of course, plenty of butter. What would a streusel topping be without butter?

Start by mixing cinnamon, sugar, flour, and baking powder in a bowl. Next, add peach chunks and toss to coat them in the mixture. Fresh peaches are ideal, but if you’re making these out of season, canned peaches will get the job done! Just make sure to drain the peaches and pat dry.

After adding your wet ingredients – milk, egg, oil, and vanilla – portion the batter out into the prepared muffin tin before moving on to the topping.

This topping. Oh my goodness. It’s deceptively simple. Just butter, flour, cinnamon, and sugar. It really shouldn’t be so amazing, but trust me, it is. Sprinkle the tops of your muffins with this magical combination and bake for 20 minutes at 350°. That’s it! Check out this delightful muffin recipe for yourself!
