Nothing says summertime like fresh fruit, and we’ve been gorging on it lately! These melt-in-your-mouth muffins were inspired by some very ripe peaches and half a container of 1/2 and 1/2 sent over by some neighbors who didn’t want it to spoil while they went on vacation. (Whatever works, right?!)
Peaches N Cream Muffins
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup half n half (whipping cream or whole milk would likely work well)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups flour
- 2 ripe peaches, chopped (I left the skin on, about 1 1/2 cups)
Beat the eggs. Mix in honey, oil, butter, sour cream and half and half.
Add baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Add flour, stir just until batter is moist.
Fold in peaches.
Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes. Makes 12-18 muffins.
I haven’t tried it, but I’m betting you could do the same thing with strawberries… or blueberries… or raspberries… Let me know if you try another fruit!
