Peach Muffins

Today is Tuesdays with Dorie but unfortunately I am not participating this week. This week's pick, Chocolate Banded Ice Cream Torte, was chosen by Amy of Food, Family, and Friends. Check out the blogroll if you would like to see how other TWD'ers made out with the torte! I've seen a few already and they are pretty impressive!

There has been a lot going on between both home and work which is why I didn't have the time to prepare the torte this week. If I could have done it this morning, believe me, I would have! All the students have returned to the university and classes began yesterday, Chris starts classes today at a different university, and I spent last weekend working EFY (Especially for You) which ended after 14 years.

I have mentioned before that I belong to a cooking forum of friends and recently they have been talking about peach muffins. Peaches are one of my favorite fruits. I love the aroma and am so happy that any peach I have had this year has been excellent. Nothing is worse than thinking you have a wondrous fruit to eat and when you take a bite out of it find it is mealy and yuck.

The recipe comes from allrecipes.com and being the muffin fanatic I am and loving peaches, I decided that this was worth trying. Not to mention my cooking friends recommended it!


Peach Muffins
allrecipes.com

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream (I didn't have a full 1/2 cup of sour cream so I used vanilla yogurt to fill up the cup measure)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (there is nothing like pure vanilla extract - it will make the recipe!)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped fresh or frozen peaches (I scalded the peach -- it took 1 large peach -- skinned it then chopped)
1 cup chopped pecans (I opted out on the nuts this time - maybe next time!)


My photo's can't compare to Cookin' Mama's on allrecipes, so make sure you check the recipe out there to see her picture! I want to thank Cookin' and Jammin' for talking about these muffins. They were delicious! I will bet the students think so too as that is where the 10 that are left are going (yeah, I HAD to eat one and I left one at home for Chris!)

oh, I actually miss the hustle and bustle of going back to school :( all my friends at Cornell are meeting up at the gorges while I'm in muggy DC waking up bright and early to go to work, haha.
These muffins look fantastic! I also completely agree with you on the unpleasant taste of mealy fruit (ew!)
I find it that it's worst with apples...

What a great use of peaches in a summery muffin. I just noticed that you are in northern NY. We lived in the Rochester area for quite a while before moving to UT. We still miss upstate. We're going back this fall for a visit, and then again to the Finger Lakes next summer.

I'll have to try. I'm headed up to the Pacific Northwest, where they actually have FRUIT STANDS (none here in the desert of NV), so peaches are on my list.

Thanks for the comment. I think we're going to end up at Keuka, but my brother in law is booking a couple houses for a family reunio so it could be anywhere. I love upstate NY and would move there in a heartbeat if we could make as good a living as we do in the West.

Ooh peach muffins. Must be great to bite into creamy little pieces embedded in the muffins.

Glad I was part of your inspiration to give this recipe a whirl! There is only one left here at our house.
