Yes, it is late August; and yes, I have been planning to share these muffins since the first baskets of Niagara Peaches arrived in stores in July. Despite eating the peaches on repeat - and making other peach recipes -  only now am I finally finished with the recipe for these fresh peach cobbler muffins. Better late than never, right? These are the perfect compromise between dessert and snack. I love to pair them with a big mug of coffee, or as a quick on-the-go snack in the afternoon, or even to snack on at 10 p.m. when my sugar cravings inevitably hit.

What exactly is a peach cobbler muffin?

These peach cobbler muffins are a delicious blend of the classic peach cobbler dessert we all know and love, and a muffin. They are a bit more firm than a cobbler so that they hold their shape when you take the wrapper off; and of course they are baked in individual servings using a muffin tin instead of a casserole dish. Instead of serving with ice cream, I topped with a sweet glaze. No matter what you call them, these muffins are sure to hit the spot.

What are the ingredients needed for peach cobbler muffins?

The ingredients are simple, everyday items (plus peaches of course!):

  • flour, baking powder, salt - the base of the muffins
  • sugars - the blend of brown and granulated sugar in this recipe adds sweetness and helps maintain moisture (also used in the streusel topping for crunch!)
  • peaches - the star of the muffins!
  • cinnamon - adds a subtle spice throughout the muffin
  • butter - the oil to use in these muffins is melted butter to add flavor
  • plain greek yogurt - adds moisture (can also use sour cream)
  • eggs - adds structure and helps the muffins rise
  • vanilla - for flavor
  • powdered sugar and milk - mixed to make a delicious glaze/icing to top the muffins with

 

How to make Peach Cobbler Muffins?

It may seem like a lot of steps on first glance; but I have broken down so that it is really very simple, and so, so worth it!

step one: Preheat oven to 375 F, line a muffin tin with paper liners and set aside

step two: in a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt

step three: add the peaches and stir until fully coated in the flour mixture; set aside

step four: in a small bowl, whisk together the greek yogurt, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract

step five: pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir well - batter will be very thick and sticky

step six: portion the muffin batter evenly between 12 lined muffin cups

step seven: in a small bowl, make the crumble topping by stirring together the flour, melted butter, brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon

step eight: sprinkle some of the crumble topping over each muffin

step nine: bake at 375 F for 18-20 minutes, or until golder brown and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean

step ten: while the muffins bake, add the milk to the powdered sugar and stir, until desired thickness is achieved (I like mine quite thick)

step 11: once the muffins are finished baking, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, then top with glaze and enjoy!

Tips and tricks for the best peach cobbler muffins:

  • for these muffins it is best to use the paper liners; there are lots of chunks of peaches which, though delicious, also sometimes can cause muffins to tear when youre tryign to remove from a pan
  • don't skip the crumble topping and glaze! they take about 2 minutes to stir together; but really add so much flavor and texture to the final muffin
  • as with the majority of muffin recipes, try not to overmix the batter otherwise the muffins will be less tender
  • try and bake the muffins soon after mixing the batter - the baking powder starts rising immediately and it is important to get them into the oven before the reaction is completely finished
  • gather all your ingredients first; nothing is worse than getting halfway through a recipe and realizing you're out of one of the main ingredients
  • if possible, try and make sure the yogurt and eggs are room temperature before starting; this will help make sure the butter stays liquid when mixing the wet ingredients
  • the batter for these muffins is extremely thick and sticky; this is normal and the peaches will release a lot of moisture while baking to make a perfectly moist muffin

Can I use frozen or canned peaches instead for these peach muffins?

Frozen or canned peaches can be substituted in this recipe. If you opt to use frozen peaches make sure they are finely diced and used them while still frozen. Canned peaches should be thoroughly drained and then diced.

How to store peach cobbler muffins:

  • these muffins are best enjoyed within 2-3 days of baking when stored in an airtight container at room temperature
  • you can freeze these muffins in a freezer Ziploc bag or airtight container for about 2-3 months
  • to thaw frozen muffins, simply reheat in the microwave for about 20 seconds, or allow to thaw at room temperature for a couple hours
