Spiced Peach Muffins Recipe

Spiced peach muffins bridge summer and fall. These warm muffins combine juicy peach chunks with fall spices.

– 2 large eggs – 1/2 cup neutral vegetable oil like canola – 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed (I used light brown sugar, you can use dark brown if you like.) – 3/4 cup cultured buttermilk – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 2 tsp baking powder – 1/2 tsp baking soda – 1/2 tsp salt – 1/2 tsp cinnamon – 1/4 tsp allspice – 1/4 tsp nutmeg – 2 cups all purpose flour – 2 ripe peaches, diced (don't peel) – 1/2 cup chopped walnuts



Spray or line a muffin tray with butter or liners. I prefer liners for moister, softer muffins.

Step 1

Step 2

Mix eggs, oil, sugar, buttermilk, and extract in a large bowl. Mix everything well. Mix in baking powder, soda, salt, and spices. 

Step 3

Fold in flour. Fold peaches and walnuts into flour when almost all combined.  Mix until everything is combined and no flour remains.

Step 4

I prefer to use an ice cream scoop to fill muffin cups. Leave the muffins on the counter for 30–60 minutes. Note: this trick raises muffins.

Step 5

Heat oven to 375F. Sugar the muffin tops and bake in your preheated oven for 25–27 minutes until risen and golden. Verify ovens early as they differ widely.
