Recipe Review - Peach Spice Muffins

For some reason this week, I found myself swimming in peaches, and we don't even really eat them. Nectarines, yes. Peaches, not so much. But, peaches are fabulous in muffins, so we whipped up a batch today and wanted to share this recipe.. it's a quick, delicious favorite, and works well with lots of other fresh fruits too.

Peach Spice Muffins

Ingredients - 1/3 cup unsalted butter (room temp), 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup water, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 1 cup peeled, chopped fresh peaches, 1 2/3 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 2 Tbsp brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in eggs, water, and almond extract. Stir in the peaches. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Add to the wet mixture and mix thoroughly. 

Pour into paper lined muffin tin (regular size). This recipe usually makes around 16 for me, but you could reduce or increase the amount in the cups if you'd rather have 12 or 18. Divide and sprinkle the brown sugar on each. I've also sprinkled nuts on the top in the past, but prefer them without. Bake for 18 minutes or until tops are golden and spring gently to the touch. Eat warm or room temp. Store covered. This are particularly delicious warm with some real whipped cream.. just FYI.
