Fresh peach muffins are delicious. A sweet bite of heaven to remind you of summertime but can be baked in the oven year round. Fruit makes it naturally sweet and moist with a bit of chunky texture inside every bite. (affiliate links present)

Can You Bake Peach Cobbler in a Muffin Tin

You can!! We will show you how long to bake mini muffins too that are smaller and so fluffy, or regular size are delicious for breakfast or dessert too. Mixing and matching sizes is fun depending on what the occasion is. Brunch usually works best with smaller bites. For a grab and go start to the day go with regular.

We share here How to Make Jumbo Muffins as well. Now those look like the ones at Costco, like you usually cut them in half. Larger is nice if you are gifting sweets. Put into a clear plastic cup and wrap that with clear cellophane bags with a bow at the top. Perfect during the holidays when you want to give neighbors and friends a little something.

Peach Muffins with Fresh Peaches

Like our juicy Peach Puff Pastry, we use fresh fruit. The difference you would get if using canned would be the lack of texture. With the juice the slices are already quite soft so when baked they could become mushy. Not that you wouldn’t still get the flavor you want but you wouldn’t get any larger chunks for that matter. We used;

What is peach cobbler topping made of?

It is rather basic and like a crumble. You mix all purpose flour, brown sugar packed, butter that has been softened, a bit of sugar and cinnamon is all.

  • 1 3/4 c all purpose flour
  • Baking soda and baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Butter softened
  • Brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • Eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Sour cream
  • Vanilla extract
  • Muffin tin and paper liners are preferred vs. spraying with non stick spray

1 3/4 cups diced peaches fresh were used. Or you could use other canned fruits like we did with our Apricot Cobbler. You can leave the skins on or else you loose a lot of the fruit if you try to peel it off. Best way to do it if you really want them off is to blanch them for just 1 minute and then use a sharp knife to peel off gently.

Could you add other fruit in these as well? Sure, but keep it to about the same amount, a little less than 2 cups total. Like our fresh Blueberry Muffin Tops this is yet another size and shape you could try out. A faster bake time because it is only half the amount of batter, and the best part if you ask me.

When using fresh fruit like we did here and in our Peach Cake Recipe with Fresh Peaches you do not need to remove the skins. If you really wanted to you’d have to cut an X on the bottom, blanch them in boiling water quick, transfer to ice bath and peel skins off.

  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper cupcake liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the streusel topping ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter until it is crumbly; set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the wet ingredients; butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and mix until well incorporated.
  • Mix in the sour cream, milk, and vanilla, then add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • Fold in the chopped peaches.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, evenly distributing all of the batter between the 12 cups. Top with the streusel topping and press the topping down lightly to be sure it sticks to the muffin batter.

Bake the muffins at 425 F for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for another 13-16 minutes until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out mostly clean. Cool the muffins in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Now if you want some of the same flavors but not totally homemade, opt for our Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix which is out of this world. Starts with a ready made dry mix though which means it is faster with fewer ingredients. Both would make a great addition to any brunch.

More from scratch flavors would be our Peach Cobbler Pound Cake. I used canned fruit in that one to make things easier but you could use either really. With a dense texture and baked in a bundt pan it is a beautiful way to serve this type of dish during the holidays.

How do you tell when muffins are done?

Insert a toothpick into the center of your blueberry or these easy peach cobbler muffins. If it comes out clean or with just a few crumbs clinging to it, they are done. If you see wet batter, they need more time. OR you can gently touch the top middle with your fingertip. It should spring back when touched, indicating that it’s fully baked. If it leaves an indentation or feels too soft, it needs more time in the oven.

How do you reheat leftover muffins

Place on a microwave-safe plate. To prevent from becoming soggy, you can optionally place a damp paper towel over it. Heat on medium power (50-60% power) for about 20-30 seconds per. You may need to adjust the time based on the wattage and the size of the machine and baked goods.

Check the temperature and texture, if it’s not warm enough, you can heat it in additional 10-second increments until it reaches your desired warmth.
