PEACH COBBLER MUFFINS INGREDIENTS

peach cobbler muffins raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

For the Muffins

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon more
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup salted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons peach juice (from the can of peaches)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans of peaches in juice

PRO TIP: You may have leftover peaches depending on the actual number of peaches in the can, brand and size of the cans.

For the Streusel Topping

  • ¼ cup salted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Fruit: While peaches are the stars of this show, you could always switch up the fruit you are using in the recipe. Replace the peaches with strawberries, cherries, blueberries or raspberries for a different delicious muffin. Or you could even mix half peaches and half of another fruit for a lovely mixed fruit combination.

Topping: A popular way to simplify the crust topping in a cobbler recipe is to use cake mix as an alternative to making your own crust topping. It doesn’t taste quite as delicious, but for the ease it offers, it can be worth it. I recommend using a vanilla cake mix to do this.

Cinnamon: You could add a teaspoon of cinnamon into your streusel topping to give it subtle spice.

HOW TO MAKE THIS PEACH COBBLER MUFFINS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Combine flour, salt and, baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.

STEP TWO: In a large mixing bowl beat or whisk together eggs, melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract, milk, and peach juice.

STEP THREE: Dump the dry ingredients into the milk and egg mixture in the large bowl and stir gently, just until combined. Do not overmix.

PRO TIP: Do not over stir the batter; otherwise, the muffins will be too dense and tough.

STEP FOUR: Drain the peaches (be sure you have added 2 tablespoons of the juice to the batter before discarding — see Step 2 above).

STEP FIVE: Dice the peaches into very small pieces (large chunks will weigh down the batter and add too much moisture).

PRO TIP: Too many peaches or excess juice in the batter will cause the muffins to take much longer to cook. Muffins may also remain too wet. Be sure to cut the pieces small enough.

STEP SIX: Toss 1 cup of cubed peaches with 1 tablespoon of flour and fold into the muffin batter. 

PRO TIP: Make sure you are measuring the 1 cup of peaches once chopped as they will condense down. Don’t measure the peach halves as 1 cup.

PRO TIP: Tossing the peaches in flour will help keep them suspended in the batter, giving you a more even distribution.

STEP SEVEN: Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups lined with paper liners or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Use a large ice cream scoop to fill each cavity about ¾ of the way full.

STEP EIGHT: Prepare the streusel by combining the flour, sugar, and cold cubed butter in a small bowl. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in the butter until the mixture forms a crumble.

STEP NINE: Sprinkle a few pieces of diced peaches over the top of the muffins. Then sprinkle streusel over the tops of the muffins.

STEP TEN: Bake at 425°F for 6 minutes. Turn down the heat to 350°F and continue baking for 15 to 18 minutes more, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

STEP ELEVEN: Cool the muffins in the muffin tin for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins to a wire rack to finish cooling.

PRO TIP: Do not leave the muffins to cool in the baking pan. The heat from the pan will overcook them.

HOW TO SERVE

These streusel-topped peach cobbler muffins would be a fantastic choice to serve at a brunch alongside our coffee cake or blueberry coffee cake or even as a dessert with a cup of tea, coffee or a latte.

They would also be a lovely special treat for a summer picnic along with a cold drink such as our iced tea, raspberry iced tea, sweet peach iced tea, or our southern strawberry sweet tea.

    These look fantastic! I also wonder how it would work with apples! Would probably need to cook the apples ahead a little bit but I think it would be yummy!

    My family loved peach cobbler. It’s my son’s request every year for his birthday, instead of cake. I have made it many times. I think this would be good with about any fruit. And I do like Streusal topping.

    These muffins look delicious. I will have to give them a try. Yes, I make Peach Cobbler often. Sometimes I make it the “dump” method and sometimes I make pie crust. I love it both ways!!

    These muffins are delicious! I used fresh peaches and since I didn’t have any juice on hand (we’re just not a juice house) I used 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon water.

    Next time I’ll definitely use peach juice as I think that will make the flavour a little more prominent.

    I found this recipe after buying some peach cobbler muffins from Buckeye’s. I can’t get enough. Drive an hour to get them lol!! Had to look for a recipe. I’m going to try this recipe. I’d like to use a 6 count jumbo muffin pan instead of a 12. Are there any changes needed to the recipe if I do that?
