White Peach Cobbler Muffins



It’s been kinda quiet here..
I know.
We moved last week…
Or should I say…we’re still in the process of moving. It doesn’t really seem right to use that word in the past tense. Especially as I sit here on an unpacked box, typing this post.
There is what looks like 1000 unpacked boxes staring at me right now.
Whose job is it to unpack them anyway?
Don’t answer that.


Let’s talk about these here muffins. Peaches and peach cobbler are a southern summer staple around these parts. And peaches.. well you can find them just about anywhere. The best being from the guy in this old beat up ford pick-up. He has crates on crates on crates of fresh peaches. A few weeks back (before I descended into the depths of moving hell) he gifted me with some beautiful white peaches.  Yea gifted..as in like free... He is now my new boo.. but let's move on..
My original plan was to grill them, but I was too lazy to get the grill going.Not to mention it was 10,000 degrees outside that day.. Just keeping it real. 


So I ended up making these peach cobbler muffins and ate them all with my neighbor. My now old neighbor who seemed like a snob at our first encounter. Eventually, we ended up bonding over this food blogging journey I’ve embarked on. You see, she is my personal recipe tester and doesn’t hesitate to tell me if something taste like straight up dank.
So we sat on the patio eating muffins and reminiscing about some of the ridiculous things that I’ve thrown together in my kitchen. All while listening to the sounds of downtown Atlanta. I’ll miss my spot downtown and my neighbor but I’m exciting about a life in the burbs and we’re really just 30 mins from downtown now, but to me that’s like..3 hours..


But as we were doing some painting at the new house. My new neighbor in the burbs brought over cookies. Like on a plate with a note.  Which I had no idea people did in real life...Do people still do that?  Obvs they do... sort like Mayberry. She stood on my front porch smiling and told me about herself and her family. It was really awkward at first because I can be a bit ummm what's the word my girl Cindy uses.. Oh yea..Snarky... but then she asked me...
“Do you like to cook?”
Hell Yea.. come on in.  


White Peach Cobbler Muffins
Prep Time- 30mins Cook Time- 25-30 mins Yield- 12 muffins

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup buttermilk
5 tablespoons vegetable oil

3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350
Lightly spray muffin tin with non stick spray or line with muffin cups
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and granulated sugar
In a separate bowl, mixing together the buttermilk, egg, oil, and vanilla.

Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Gently fold in peaches. Careful not to over mix.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin tin and sprinkle with Turbinado sugar.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until muffins are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. But not too long because these little babes are the straight up the biznaz when warm.

  2. Peaches, are a weakness of mine. Sadly, though good, peaches are really difficult to come by in the Pacific Northwest. :( Some day I will go to Georgia and have an honest to goodness Georgia Peach. It's on my bucket list, weird I know but it's the truth. These muffins look lush!

  4. Moving... I mean there really are no fun words about it. And I'm starting to consider a big move and the thought of having to pack and unpack makes me want to cry myself to sleep.

    And peach cobbler... Such a southern staple!! I love that it's in muffin form!!

    P.S. Bake in the Day Bakery is my favorite cookbook of the moment too.

  9. I want to know a guy with crates and crates of peaches in the back of his pickup truck! He'd be my boo, too. These muffins looks straight-up delicious. You're right, don't light the grill just for the peaches! Grill the peaches when you're already grilling the rest of your meal and you want to add a tasty dessert :)

  11. Oh, my. I don't know a guy with crates and crates of peaches (pretty sure that's a south-only thing), but I do happen to have 40 pounds of peaches sitting on my dining room table at the moment. They're contemplating their future as vanilla-scented peaches, jam, and who-knows-what. These muffins will have to be on the list as well. The peaches used in the muffins can give me the energy to get through the rest of their compadres ;)

  12. I'm in Ohio and I have a tree full of peaches. They aren't white ones though. Do you think regular ones would work the same? These muffins look wonderful!!
