Peaches and Cream Muffins

Remember our Secret Recipe Club? Sure you do! My first secret recipe post was those luscious Caramel Pecan Brownies followed last month by the equally fabulous Berry Crostata. Secret Recipe Club is a group of food bloggers who are assigned to make and post a recipe from one of the other participating blogs. You visit your assigned blog, choose a recipe, make and post it. No one tells whose blog they have until the day of posting. It surely doesn’t seem like it has been three months already, but here I am with another Secret Recipe Club post.

Our little club has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few months, and we’d love to have even more bloggers join in on the fun. If you’re interested, just fill out the form and the club’s coordinator, Amanda, will get in touch with you.

I have to tell you, I have been so lucky with my Secret Recipe Club assignments. This month I was assigned Amber’s Bluebonnets & Brownies blog! Amber is a native Texan who lived for a time in England and is now based in New Jersey. Even though she lives away from the region, you can still see her southwestern heritage shining through in all her recipes. I was highly tempted to make her mouth-watering Tacos de Camaron or even to try my hand at Migas. Very tempted indeed. But, since peach season is just getting going here in Georgia, I chose her delightful Peaches and Cream Muffins recipe.

This recipe is just as easy as it is delicious. To get started, heat your oven to 400 degrees and prepare your muffin tins. The recipe made 9 muffins for me. A little trick I learned a long time ago is that if you have empty muffins cups, pour a little water into them. It keeps any oil that may have gotten into them when you prepped the pan from burning while the muffins cook.

Peaches and Cream Muffins

In a medium bowl, beat together the egg, sour cream and oil.  Combine the dry ingredients and sift them into the wet ingredients.

Stir together just until moistened. Don’t overmix the batter. Gently stir in the peaches.

Fill the cups ¾ full with batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out nearly clean.

    I just don’t understand it… this is too funny – I sought to make a peach-something muffin but settled on a cream pie instead (post coming up)…
    now I will not have to meddle with recipes for a good muffin, I have yours, one I know will be good…thanks Lana

      It’s downright crazy the way we think alike when it comes to cooking. You’ll like this little muffin, Drick. Just make sure your peaches are really good and ripe. But, of course, you know that!

    I’m not much for peach flavoured, but this is the second recipe I’ve seen recently that is making me reconsider. Looks excellent!

    Lana, I am so excited you got me! This is literally my favorite muffin recipe in the world. I usually double it because the muffins freeze really well too. But now I seriously have to make them again and re-photograph. Your photos are so beautiful, and mine was taken back when I was a newb, still photographing at night, with a flash, in a dark kitchen *cringe*. You show off those muffins so perfectly. Thank you for choosing it. :)

      Amber – Your muffins were such a pleasure to make and so delicious! We’re still enjoying them. And don’t worry about your photos! You should just go back and look at some of my old ones. They’re just embarrassing :-)

      I think we’re a little ahead on most everything, Barbara. We’ve had peaches for several weeks now. Cucumbers and tomatoes, too.

    I would like a few of these to nibble on right now! :) With peaches in season right now, these are irresistible.
    And, just signed up for SRC :)

      Hi Claudia – you’ll like these, I’m sure. The texture of the muffin is good and the sweetness from the peach – yum!

      This little muffin really could be dessert. I could see a little cream cheese frosting on it. I actually debated doing a crumb topping as Amber suggested in the original recipe, but honestly it doesn’t even need that. Delicious just as it is.

      Thanks! There are so many great recipes on Amber’s site that it was difficult to choose one. I think I made a good choice!

    Love the chunky pieces of peaches in the muffins! Happy to be a part of SRC and get to know you :) You have a lovely space and am off to browse your recipes.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! We have used it several times, especially over the holiday weekend. It has such a fresh Georgia peach taste! I have some in the oven now.
